How I Overcame my Porn Habit with This Revelation

“Even so, consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” (NASB) -Romans 6:11

I fought with porn for greater than 10 years

I fought with porn and lust for over ten years. I felt like nothing might assist me. I felt like I used to be dwelling in a deep darkish tunnel. I began “considering” myself a slave to porn and lust.

Sin destroyed my true id till I confronted the truth that I believed a lie. I used to be not a slave to sin. I used to be not a slave to lust. I think about what Jesus did for me and the way He made means for me to expertise true freedom. When temptation got here (normally at night time after I was alone with my laptop computer), I’d get away from bed, activate some worship music, and begin “considering” my actual id in Christ by prayer and meditation.

Lust has no energy over us… despite the fact that it doesn’t at all times really feel that means

Paul’s phrases are evident, we’re not dying to sin, however as an alternative, we’re already useless to sin and lust. We’re useless to sin and alive in Christ Jesus. Jesus’ life flows inside us. Many occasions we don’t really feel that means, however this lovely reality stays a actuality.

Paul is giving us a commandment. He understands that Jesus died for our sins, He has conquered the ability of sin, He has introduced us into His Kingdom, and now we have to “consider.”

The phrase think about is the Greek phrase “logizomai.” It’s an accounting time period: it means so as to add one thing up. It’s like if you go to the financial institution and ask for the overall steadiness in your account. After discovering out your account steadiness, you don’t have extra money; however what you do have is the worth of your checking account.

In different phrases, what Paul is saying is since you might be useless to sin, now reckon it to be true. Consider in your coronary heart this actuality about your self. Reside out this new id in Jesus.

What ought to I do after I need to watch porn?

When temptations come, and the lustful ideas begin to bombard your thoughts, remind your self that you’re alive in Christ. Sin is useless and has no energy. There’s a new king on the throne of your coronary heart.

A couple of months in the past, I used to be studying a narrative about St. Augustine. Throughout his teenagers and younger grownup years, he battled with lust. The whole lot modified when he surrendered his life to God. He turned one of many fathers of the early church. Someday an previous pal approached him. She tried to seduce him to observe her dwelling for sexual activity. Augustine turned down her providing immediately. She thought to herself, “Maybe he forgot who I am,” and he or she mentioned to him, “Augustine, it is me!” “Yes, I know,” Augustine replied, “but it’s not I.”

What an excellent actuality! We’re not what we was. We’re not slaves to lust. We’re alive in Christ. It’s Christ that lives in us. We have to “consider” this new actuality and stroll in it.

Lust has no energy; it can’t enslave us as a result of our previous needs don’t outline us anymore.

At this time, I encourage you to wish and ask God for a revelation of who you might be. Ask Him that can assist you imagine that you just certainly are useless to lust. It’s not your battle, however His. God goes earlier than you. You simply have to stroll it out.
