Unleashing the Power of Habits

Blake Jennings & Carolyn Jones


What is one bad habit you want to break this year?

What is one good habit you want to build this year?


A Definition of Habits


Achoice that has become automatic


“All our life, so far as it has definite form, is but a mass of habits.”

William James, philosopher & psychologist


Achoice that has become automatic

A gift from God

Allow you to learn and grow

A gift damaged by sin

Can become a source of habitual evil

Can lead to addiction


A Theology of Habits


Romans 6:15–16

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?


Repeated sins  Habits  Addictions  Death


“All sin is addiction. Whether it's bitterness, whether it's envy, whether it's materialism, whether it's laziness, whether it's impurity — every sinful action becomes an addiction… exactly like addiction cycles and addiction dynamics begin to operate.”

Timothy Keller, Sin as Slavery sermon


Repeated sins  Habits  Addictions  Death

Repeated obedience  Habits  Sanctification


Philippians 2:12–13

So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
