A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
I Thess. 5:22
“Abstain from all appearance of evil.”
This is a short verse but it asks us to do a lot.As Christians we cannot avoid every kind of evil because we live in a sinful world.We can however make sure we don’t give evil a foothold in our life by avoiding tempting situations and obeying God’s Word.Also we need to ask God to help us avoid all appearance of evil.From time to time there is pressure put on us to yleld to the influences that can lead us away from God and into sin.Being tempted is not in itself sin.Sin arises when believers give in to temptation.The Bible urges us to resist temptation and gives us encouragement to face it.My friends through Jesus Christ we have the inner power to be be victorious over temptation.
God wants us believers to present a holy life to a sinful world
