"DRUGS, ALCOHOL, AND ADDICTIONS" contains the following lessons:
- Lesson 1 - Should I Go Clean?
Lesson 1 forms the critical foundation of breaking free from addictions. "Should I Go Clean" asks the fundamental question of who you are in Christ while helping you solidify your position in Christ.
- Lesson 2 - The Predicament
Lesson 2 provides critical awareness for breaking free. Your awareness of the spiritual, environmental, and personal temptations and conditions that constantly work for your destruction will help position you not only as fertile ground for freedom, but also the protection to remain there.
- Lesson 3 - There is Hope
Lesson 3 helps you see your utter hopelessness, so that you can fully embrace God's love as the path to freedom. You will find your hope and victory in your new beginning in Christ and who you are in Christ.
- Lesson 4 - Embracing Freedom
Lesson 4 will help you turn your hope into freedom. Your embrace of freedom begins by fully embracing God with every detail of your life while believing and trusting Him for freedom. Shedding the weights that have enslaved you, while fully embracing Jesus, allows Jesus to make reality your freedom and His victory in you.
- Lesson 5 - Freedom at Last
Lesson 5 helps you understand and embrace who you are in Christ and how you are equipped to break the bonds of addiction. Knowing your identity in Christ as well as the benefits of your identity will release you to experience your new found freedom.
- Lesson 6 - There is a Lion Prowling for Your Destruction
Lesson 6 deals with the forces of evil, the world, and your flesh that are working for your destruction. Satan wants you to be enslaved to alcohol and drugs, while Christ wants you to be consumed by His love and grace. You will learn how to be free to live in victory from addictions and from those things that enslaved you in the past.
- Lesson 7 - Battling the Lion
Freedom is wonderful but not without challenge. Once you are free from your addictions, you will continue to encounter temptations, persecutions, and hardships. Any of these can become a struggle that can trigger a temptation from your old addiction. “Battling the Lion” will help you be an over-comer instead of one who succumbs.
- Lesson 8 - Sustaining Freedom
Lesson 8 will help you sustain your freedom by teaching you how to allow the Holy Spirit to continue His transforming work in you. This lesson will help you embrace and live in the reality of your new creation so that God can fully express His life through you.
- Lesson 9 - Becoming Like Christ
Lesson 9 continues the process of helping you sustain freedom by showing you how making Jesus your consuming quest in life is fundamental for your freedom. More of Christ in you means you will experience more of the fruit of the Spirit resulting in a life that no longer craves stimulants to create life or to medicate life. You can now live the way God created you.
- Lesson 10 - Free for Life
Lesson 10 continues to build on your freedom going forward by teaching you to walk by faith while trusting Jesus for every detail of your life. This lesson will practically equip you to have victory over the addictions that have controlled your life in the past.
Answers to Lessons
Each lesson is provided in a dual format. The first lesson includes the Scriptures and questions, while the second provides Scriptures, questions, and answers. It is recommended that, once the study is completed, you go back through the study using the lesson that includes answers. Go through the lesson with answers not as a routine exercise, but ask the Holy Spirit to impress upon you what you should apply to your life. Make your applications specific and accountable instead of merely desires with no accountability to implement.
If you are doing the lesson with another person, you should complete the lesson without looking at the answers. Allow God to speak to you in the lesson. God can always impress upon you new truth or conviction where you fall short - no matter how familiar you are with a topic.
