One other recommendation regarding your selection of an accountability partner - consider making it someone that you ABSOLUTELY do not want to have to report failure to, such as a younger Christian who considers you more mature in your faith, but who is mature enough to handle helping you with your spiritual temptations. Knowing that you will have to report failure, and knowing that it is someone to whom you do not want to have to report failure, is powerful motivation that will make you think before sinning.

 

This sounds like a lot of work, and it is - but if you employ these steps in dealing with sin struggles and in getting control over your thought-life, there is no reason to be resigned to defeat. Why not make a New Year's resolution to gain victory over one sin area in your life? And why not start working on that resolution today?
