The Mortification of Sin

Check out the title-linked book! I just finished it, and while it forces the reader to despair, it also reveals the only hope for overcoming that despair. John Owen was a 17th century Puritan, and this abridged version of his classic work by Richard Rushing makes him for more understandable to today's layman. I'd call this a MUST READ for anyone struggling to "put off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles" (Hebrews 12:1-4). It just might help you resist that sin to the point of shedding your blood, which might just be what God is looking for in you - utter devotion to Him alone.
