Daybreak: A Guide to Overcoming Temptation is not a groundbreaking book on helping Christians battle with the inevitable temptations that accompany the Christian life. However, it is one of the best and most succinct books that I have read on temptation. Nathan Ward does a fabulous job of biblically laying out how we as Christians should view temptations in light of the Gospel.

Chapter One lays out a call to holiness that is Gospel-centered, and really sets the tone for the rest of the book. If

Daybreak: A Guide to Overcoming Temptation
Review

Daybreak is a short little book about how to break the hold of temptation on a Christian’s life. Now to be totally honest, I hate self-help books. Loathe them. Which is ironic because I guess most “Christian Living” books could be considered self-help. I am much more a fan of books that are theological in nature that provide powerful application, which the Spirit in turn can use in my life. I am always skeptical of the “five steps to a more powerfu

“But you are a chosen people, the King’s cohanim, a holy nation, a people for God to possess! Why? In order for you to declare the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (I Peter 2:9)

The comparison of light and darkness is found throughout Scripture, with light representing deliverance from bondage to sin and darkness in turn being reflective of sin still maintaining a stranglehold on one’s life. As noted in I Peter 2:9, as a chosen people, a royal cohanim o

Have you ever been in that place where you have given in? To temptation? To sin? Or maybe you know someone who you see falling into temptation again and again. We wonder - how can this happen ? We have this amazing truth; we have this wonderful, merciful and grace full Saviour - So how can anyone possibly turn around and give in to sin after having all this revealed to them?

Having been washed in the watery grave of baptism; having received the infilling of the Holy Ghost I know all too well tha

In Daybreak, Nathan Ward observed that many people are wavering when it comes to viewing their own sin and they tend to overlook their sins. They might not really believe their sin is such a big deal. Self-denial is the biggest failure of why we struggle against overcoming temptation. Nathan Ward stated God views sin way different than we currently do. It’s crucial to remember sin is extremely insulting to God and we’re called to live a life of holiness. He breaks down the key truths found in 1 ...more

Sometimes the sun is more than just the sun and night is more than just night." The sun rose on Jacob after his wrestling match with God. A new day dawned and he had a new name to match his new life. A similar call for daybreak is made for Christians today: come out of the darkness and into God's marvelous light (1 Pet 2.9). As Christians, we must not live in the night. We have experienced our own daybreak and should walk in the light-but far too often, we find the darkness alluring. DAYBREAK ...more

The million dollar question when becoming a Christian is do I want to give up sin. How do I view sin. Jesus has done the work on the cross for my forgiveness of sin and it is finished, however, do I cling to my sin or to Christ. Do I rely in faith on what Christ has done? Do I remain in the darkness or do I seek the daybreak? If these words reasonate with you, you may want to pick up this short study on temptation. We all are tempted and being tempted is not a sin, however, giving into our ...more
