A Theology of Habits


Unleashing the power of habits blake jennings carolyn jones

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 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.
