Overview

Subtitled, "A Devotional for Saints Who Still Struggle with Sin," this handbook will initiate Christians, new and old, into a liberating daily relationship with the Master Himself. In John 8:31-36, Jesus made an amazing promise: "If you continue in my word, you are my disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Ultimately, all forms of emotional, spiritual, and behavioral problems can be traced to the lies we have believed. They are often so strongly ingrained into our thinking that the Bible calls them "strongholds" (2 Corinthians 10:4).

Not only are we surrounded by a society that is already saturated with deception of various kinds, we have the addition vulnerability of a nature that finds these false promises and enticements very appealing. Once acted upon, our bodies conspire against us by releasing powerful chemicals and hormones that create a hunger for more. Some call it addiction. The Bible calls it sin.

In the same passage, in John 8, Jesus offers more than a promise. He also warns us that those who commit (habitually practice) sin will become slaves of sin. It's the worst form of slavery because its subjects don't every recognize their captivity. Jesus concludes, "If the Son sets you free, then you are free indeed." I've experienced what Jesus can do in these areas, and I continue enjoying more every day. That's real freedom.

Meet the Author

Gary Webb grew up in East Tennessee, except for periods when his father moved the family while pursuing construction work. He never regularly attended church during his childhood or adolescence. While serving in the Navy near San Francisco, California from 1970-1972, he became addicted to various drugs. The Navy sent him for 90 days of in-patient rehabilitation before having him returned to duty. Unfortunately, he soon relapsed into even worse drug abuse. Then, in December 1972, while reading the Bible, Gary placed his faith in Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. The changes in his life were instant and dramatic. Gary served almost four years as a substance counselor at the Counseling and Assistance Center, Jacksonville, Florida, completing his enlistment in August 1976. Following discharge, he served as assistant pastor at Seaboard Avenue Baptist Church in Jacksonville. After completing additional education, he served as associate pastor of a church in Irving, Texas. His responsibilities there included a wide range of counseling duties and leadership of a small group ministry program. Gary was recalled to active duty in the Navy on two occasions, finally retiring in 1996. Since then, he has pastored four churches in Georgia and Alabama. Gary is a graduate of the University of the State of New York, Luther Rice Seminary, Baptist Bible College, and Andersonville Theological Seminary. He also has additional studies at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, and Dallas Baptist College. Following his retirement as pastor of Siberton Baptist Church in Attalla, Alabama, Gary has applied himself toward writing and speaking engagements through Disciples Indeed Ministries in Attalla, Alabama. His ministry website is www.disciplesindeed.net. To contact Gary for speaking engagements or personal questions, you may email him at: .
