FREEDOM FROM ADDICTIONS

Page 2

Here is Mike Quarles' comparison of Man's answer and God's answer to addiction.

MAN’S ANSWER 


A PROGRAM:                     Designed to change the behavior of the person (Gal. 4:9)
RESULT:                             Self-improvement (Gal. 6:3)
NEED:                                 To constantly work on doing the right behavior  (Gal. 3:1-5)
DYNAMIC:                           Our commitment and performance (Col. 2:20-23)







MAN'S ANSWER SUMMARIZED: 


COMMITMENT:                        To subject myself to a program of:
LAW:                                        Rules, steps, concepts and principles through:
WORKS:                                   Disciplined self-effort to:
STRENGTHEN THE FLESH:     Improve self in order to produce
DEAD WORKS:                        Behavior change

GOD'S ANSWER: 


THE CROSS:        To put to death the person who does the behavior (Rom. 6:4)
RESULT:               New person with a new identity who behaves differently (Gal. 2:20)
NEED:                   To understand who we are so our behavior will match up with our identity (2 Cor. 5:17)
DYNAMIC:             The Life of Christ (Col.3:3)





GOD'S ANSWER SUMMARIZED: 


DEATH:                I agree with God's verdict on self and give up on myself and my resources by:
GRACE:               Appropriate what God has done by:
FAITH:                 Appropriate my death and resurrection with Christ by the:
SPIRIT:                Depend upon Christ's life in me to meet all my needs in order to produce:

LIFE:                   Good works, the fruit of the Spirit
