We need to enlist Jesus Christ

When we come to recovery, respond to incentives, enlist for transforming treatment, few of us want to slip back into our wrong ways of the past. Old habits die hard. Former associates tag us. Skeletons in our closets haunt us. Only total commitment will encourage us to keep stepping forward, unhindered by reminders of our past. We need God’s forgiveness, salvation and power to avoid the resurrection of former habits, compulsions and addictions. We need to enlist Jesus Christ to live lives of victory. If we do there should be no reason for us to desire return to things that have previously wrecked our lives.

Colossians 3:8 Put these things out of your life: anger, bad temper, doing or saying things to hurt others, and using evil words when you talk.
