FREE! Session 3
Ponder, Action, Prayer, Challenge
Read Galatians 5:1; It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
The verse says that a Christian has been set free from everything, which includes addictive behaviour. How could you stand firm so that you are not burdened by slavery again?
Consider Janet’s list from the talk ( remember she was a drug user and needed to make some very practical changes to avoid using) and ponder the following verse from the Bible: All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 2 Tim. 3:16 New Living Translation

PRAY both morning and evening
Lord Jesus, help me with my struggle against temptation. Please help me find practical ways to stand up to daily challenges. Help me change my thoughts to biblical truths and please give me the strength to persevere in this journey. In Christ’s name I pray; Amen.
Read the Key Verse Galatians 5:1 (above) everyday . Memorize it if you are able.
Optional extremely valuable task: Read 1 Corinthians 10:13; No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
This is a promise. Read this verse everyday, you can memorize this too!
