Wielding The Sword Wrongly

"Maybe memorizing scripture isn't helping you put to death sin because you're wielding the sword wrongly. ... Instead of memorizing the "don't do this" verses try unveiling the lie of sin by memorizing promises of God---verses that speak to the reality of joy." - Matt Chandler Yes a 1,000 times over!

"You give them drink from the river of your delights." -psalm 36:8

"It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased." C.S. Lewis
