The Domino Effect
“Our habits will make us or break us. We become what we repeatedly do.” Sean Covey
15 For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.
18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing.
24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.
Three Reasons We Don’t Succeed
1. We focus on the what we want to change but don’t understand the how.
2. We don’t see progress fast enough.
9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
3. Our inaccurate identity harms our success.
6 We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. 7 For one who has died has been set free from sin.
18 and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.
