Paul admitted he was a sinner. He took self-assessments to understand where he fell short. He knew he was held back from God because he was enslaved to sin. He knew there were small triggers that kept building into this chronic sin. Just like Paul, we struggle with our chronic sins. We each have our small triggers that lead us to our own human sinful nature. Ultimately, these chronic sins divert our attention away from our God who deserves it.
Questions for further thought:
1. Identify the chronic sins that divert your attention away from God.
2. What triggers lead you to the chronic sins in Question 1.
Challenge: Determine a small change to your life you can take that would stop a trigger identified in Question 2.
