The Power of Addictions and The Wages of Sin
Romans 7:19- For the good that I would, I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Romans 7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. The power of sin empowers people to do what he or she would not normally do. Every man, woman, boy and girl has somehow in life committed an act of sin. As many of us do believe, sin started in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve. God commanded Adam and Eve not to take from “The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil”, but they took and ate from the tree anyway. Ever since that sinful act was committed, the earth of people have struggled with doing what they would normally not do.
Psychological and Physical Dependence to Chemical Controlled Substance
Using and abusing Alcohol, Cocaine, Ecstasy, Heroin, or Marijuana for personal pleasure is against the will of God. Sin has empowered people to do what they are not supposed to do. Drug Abuse and Addiction, which causes humanity to rebel against God, has taken people farther than they have imagined. All because of disobeying the rules and laws of God, society have become entangled with substance abuse. From Heroin, Marijuana, Cocaine, Alcohol, Ecstasy, to prescription medicine addiction sin has caused millions of people to become addicted to the way those chemical controlled-substances stimulate the brain. Due to rebellion toward God, many people have suffered tremendously.
In order for a world of people to be freed from their chemical controlled substance addiction, and abuse, they need Jesus to forgive their sins. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him,” I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the father but by me”. As the Christian family has learned, when someone is caught up in addictions, he or she needs to be forgiven of sin. All drug addiction has been earned through the cunning works of sin. Sin has cleverly caused millions of people to have a psychological and physical dependence to Alcohol, Cocaine, Ecstasy, Heroin, Marijuana, or Prescribed Medicine. The “Way” to have a chance at getting your life back on the right track is to be forgiven of your illegal drug using deeds. Forgiveness is the act of love that God uses through Jesus blood. Forgiveness operates through one’s faith and belief. After you ask God to forgive you of your sins, your healing is then being applied.
The blood of Jesus was shed on the cross. That same blood is God’s cure for healing brains and bodies that crave for the use of chemical controlled substances. Forgiveness will give any man or woman the ability to live in abstinence.
