Episode 175: Dealing with besetting sexual sin

Episode Highlights:

  • If not already, engage in the typical mechanics of fighting sin: radical amputation (Matt 5:29-30), putting off/putting on (Eph 4:22-24), mind renewal (Rom 12:2), accountability (2 Tim 2:22), and prayer.
  • It is crucial to have a clear view of the compassion of Christ for sinners. He is drawn to us, pities us in our sin, rather than repulsed. (Mark 10:21; Heb 4:15-16)
  • Book recommendations: Gentle and Lowly (Dane Ortlund); The Heart of Christ (Thomas Goodwin); The Bruised Reed (Richard Sibbes)
