On this Good Friday, I want to recommend a wonderful teaching by Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church, “Death by Love: Addiction and Atonement.” This audio was recorded at a past conference for CCEF, one of the best organizations when it comes to equipping counselors and others who help people.
In this message, Driscoll discusses how the atonement frees us from addiction and provides a number of helpful lenses through which to find help.
I was particularly blessed by a story he tells about how one husband responded to news of his wife’s past adultery (you’ll have to listen to hear it!).
Driscoll also wrote a terrific book on this topic, Death by Love. One of our Community Groups went through this book last summer and it proved to be very fruitful.
