How do we change? How can we be freed from sin that so easily and readily entangles us? God's Word makes it clear that not only has the cross of Christ removed the penalty of sin, but also the dominion of sin. It no longer rules us or enslaves us, even if it feels that way. Because we are a new creation, we can be free from the slavery of sin and have power to crucify the flesh. But it starts with believing who we are in Christ and what He has done for us. We must know that His Spirit is the One that works in us and carries out the work of transformation, promising to mold and shape us into His image.

ABOUT THIS SERIES: Your habits form you more than you form your habits. One study claims that 40% of our day's decisions come from habits. Most times, we don't even see these habits; we take them for granted, we mindlessly carry them out, and we move along with life. And yet, every time we do them, they are shaping us, reinforcing patterns, desires, and strengthening particular passions. In short, they are leading us in worship. How do we take back control of our habits and cultivate them in a way that leads us towards godliness and a love for Jesus? One way is to see our habits as liturgy: repetitions done to facilitate worship. When we see our whole life as liturgy, it changes how we approach every decision.
