In most areas of life, freedom is a choice. But it’s also a process … and today on Bold Steps, Pastor Mark Jobe is guiding us through the process that leads to freedom from bad habits. As we near the end of the first week of the new year, I’m wondering how many of us have already fallen behind in our New Year’s resolutions. It’s sad, funny, and true that new habits are hard to form … while old habits are hard to break. And that’s especially true of bad habits. Those familiar patterns of sin and unhealthy habits sometimes have a way of sticking around a lot longer than we wished … despite our best efforts to change. And that’s why today’s Bold Steps message is so important. Mark is giving us the biblical keys to break free from those bad habits, and start taking steps into the freedom that Christ provides.
