On a recent trip to Würzburg, Debbie and I took the time to tour the Fortress - which housed the ruler until a plush palace was built centuries later in the city center. This fortress is impressive and was even carefully renovated; being completed in the 90s after decades of work.
It reminded me that while we build habits into our lives, some of them negative, it is Jesus that promises to tear down anything the resists his rule. And he is strong enough to carry out that promise.
Warning: This is a somber, very sad piece. The idea is to use it as a sermon bumper or leadin and then turn the message with the hope of Christ.
And just to put the question to rest, it is a storyline. I am not addicted to anything but Jesus. No intervention needed.
