Inspiration for Christians

Jeff Garrett offers some smart and godly wisdom for Christians seeking to overcome temptation.
Talk to yourself when you are tempted to sin. Say to yourself, “I died to my sinful nature. I can’t live this way anymore. I am a new person with a new life. I belong to Jesus.” You must to go on pressing yourself and talking to yourself saying “I know who I am. I am God’s child.” Keep talking to yourself. Be vigorous and relentless in your thought life. Consider yourself dead to sin. Talk out loud if you have to!
