Release the Sin

“Nevertheless, he clung to the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which he made Israel sin; he did not depart from them.” (2 Kings 3:3)

The Bible doesn’t use the word ‘addiction’ – that is a modern term.  Instead it takes about being enslaved to sin, entangled in sin, or (as in the verse above) those who cling to sin.

When you know that a behavior is wrong and yet you cling to it anyways – you’ve become its slave.  Sin doesn’t want what is best for you and it doesn’t love you back.

Let it go.  Just let the sin go and move on.  There are better things that await those that turn to God to be set free.

“Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?” (Romans 6:16)
