Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst, “coming” to him fulfills our hunger and “believing” in him quenches our thirst. As a reminder for the next 6 weeks I will be using the acronym T.H.I.R.S.T. Today is Part 2 of 6 so we will be looking at the ‘H’ in our acronym which stands for, “habits.”
“No one born of God makes a practice of sinning” (1 John 3:9). What are your habits? Good habits will be a blessing, bad habits will be enslaving. Habits are linked to your time in that they can either take your time, or you can give your time to them. For example; those involved in “habitual” sin, is a sign of “taking” your time, while those involved in “giving” their time are those who are learning from Gods Word to renew their minds (Romans 12:2), and crucifying their flesh with its passions and desires (Galatians 5:24). So are you a giver of your time, or is your time being taken from you? Your time and habits cannot be separated. Time well spent will have a great return, while time poorly spent (in habitual sin) will have no return of any value!

From a slave to sin–to freedom in Christ (Galatians 5:1). From an abusive husband verbally and physically–to loving his wife as Christ loved the church (Ephesians 5:25). Now an Elder at Family Bible Church, Erick speaks, teaches, and preaches with the same passion he once had for sin! Erick’s favorite quote was one of his very own, “If I had the passion to serve God, like I have passion for pornography, I would be unstoppable.” Since 2003, Erick has been growing in his unstoppable passion for the Lord.
