“So far as in us lies, we should close every avenue by which the tempter may find access to us.” Thoughts from the Mount of Blessings, page 118
If our friends influence us in the wrong direction, then we should purge them.
If we eat too much ice cream, then we should have our spouse do the shopping.
It only makes sense that we should participate in our own salvation by avoiding temptation, when possible.
We will not remain saved if we fail to lean against the winds of evil.
Yes, we are weak, and can’t do this on our own, but we must put our faith in Christ to live like Jesus.
I praise God again today for a love that desires to help us when we pray, study the Bible and meditate on God’s Word.
What say you about God today?
