Our Battle Plan

Cheap plan
Thorough Plan
If we merely seek to overcome our lusts to avoid some bad consequence, we are no doubt fooling ourselves. Lusts quickly ensnare their victims in patterns that are hard to break out of. We need to look beyond our immediate need and see this as an opportunity to get a better picture of our whole life. Although many of us have not thought about God's purpose for our lives in any given area, it is important that we seek to understand His purposes, appreciate His design, and adopt His design and purposes for our lives. We have not given any simple answers because the problem is not simple. This doesn't mean the escape is so hard. However, many do not take the time to be thorough so to deal with the problems needing to be dealt with.
Our last section deals with those issues that come up in the race to gain sexual purity. Many believe they are sufficient for winning. They aren't. The experience of repeated bad starts will discourage anybody! We must not just run steadily in the first part of the race but all the way through. We must not just win a battle but the war! Our lives and the lives of those around us are at stake.

Our last section
  • What happens when we fall into sin?
  • Why do I fall?
  • Any special techniques to keep from falling?
  • How does confession fit into things?
  • What if I don't think I can make it?
  • What happens if I think I am on the wrong track?
  • How do I clean up my failures?
Christians in Recovery provides moral support and lots of resources on overcoming lusts.
