“Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is accomplished, it brings forth death” (James 1:15).

The language of childbirth paints a vivid picture of the evolving path of sin’s destructive course. While we would never consider impeding the gestational development of a child, James point is that the birth cycle of sin—from the conception of lust to the fruition of execution—is a process that can be aborted, broken, and stopped. It’s the pro-active approach to living as a victor instead of the conditioned approach that exists as a victim.
