I used to fight sin with all that was in me. I’d make goals for overcoming it. I’d pray and ask for strength. I’d talk about my struggles with my friends and seek their support. It was a very tiring business, but I knew that as a child of God I had to live a different way than I had before. I was a new creation.
While we should all do what we can to live righteous lives, I’ve found a better way.
The best way to avoid sin is to fill yourself up so completely with Jesus that when sin crouches at your door, there is a “No Vacancy” Sign.
Read His Word.
Share His transforming power.
Ask Him to fill you from head to toe.
Take every thought captive and turn it over to Him.
Ask Him to shoulder Your burdens.
Follow His path.
Ask Him to fight your battles.
Trust Him to calm your fears.
Fill your soul with His presence.
Empower Him to guard your heart against sin.
