How many times have you tried to change a behavior only to find yourself doing the same thing again? Do these phrases sound familiar? "There I go again!" "I've had this struggle for years, and I just can't seem to win." "I do okay for awhile, but then I get caught in the same old sin." It's easy to be discouraged when we fall into the same old sins, but God, in the Bible, offers hope to repeat offenders.
Timothy S. Lane, a pastor, counselor, father, and husband helps you fight the daily, small battles with temptation by looking at the desires that underlie your behaviors, the different stages of temptation, and how honestly going to Christ in repentance and faith will change your desire life. You will learn that you and your sin are no match for God's goodness, power, and grace.
