Why do we want sin? Where do sinful desires come from? We often believe that sinful desires must come from some remnant of our past self, some dark corner of our heart, or some unseen attack from Satan. 

 

But the sinful desires of your heart actually come from something far more simple: a sense of lacking. When you feel like you are lacking pleasure, acceptance, validation, power, or anything else, you run to sin to provide a solution.

 

In this video, I explain how the Gospel of Jesus can “Rewire Your Heart” away from looking to sin for fulfillment and toward looking to God.

8All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
