A Way of Escape focuses on the Spirit-anointed apps as flesh-diffusers. But might the Holy Spirit—the Comforter (John 16:7)—have additional comforting applications?

·        Other addictions come to mind

·        Sooner or later, most must grapple with grief resulting from the loss of a loved one

·        Facebook during a pandemic or during election season reveals anger management issues (see today’s lead graphic)

·        Millions also suffer from chronic pain and associated mood disorders such as depression and anxiety

Spirit-anointed flesh-diffusing apps are the stars in A Way of Escape. But might Spirit-anointed grief-relieving apps, or Spirit-anointed anger-managing apps, or Spirit-anointed depression-combatting apps star in sequels focusing on a more holistic approach to overall wellness? The same apps would likely star. Only the targeted affliction would change.


In A Way of Escape, readers learn of the possibility of finding Holy Spirit comfort for dealing with a variety of life’s discomforting issues. Readers learn how to step up the degree to which they “walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16). They learn how to build a library of Spirit-anointed, flesh-diffusing apps. Apps that are uniquely fitted to them, and their unique Spirit-filling triggers (Ephesians 5:18b-19).

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).

The still-struggling now have another option. The still-struggling now have fresh hope for discovering that long-sought-after way of escape from sin and temptation (I Corinthians 10:13). A way that—because it is wholly Spirit-powered—does not require enlisting the aid of an accountability partner or group. Truly, a game-changer!
