Undoubtedly, all of us face temptations of one sort or another. Each of us has areas where we could be vulnerable to sin if we don’t have our guard up, if you are wondering “how do I avoid sin or stop sinning?” Then this spiritual reflection is designed for you.
How Do I Stop Sinning?
The word of God, as stated in the Bible in Romans 8:5, says “Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit Desires.” When we ask Jesus to come in to our hearts to be Lord over our life, then the Holy Spirit of God comes to reside within us. Our choice is then to let our minds be controlled by the Holy Spirit as opposed to our inherent sinful nature.
We Can Avoid Sin
When we ask the Holy Spirit to help us take the right course of action, we are less likely to respond to our sinful nature. When the focus is on running all judgments through our spiritual filter to determine right and wrong, we will most likely choose not to sin, but rather to follow a more God honoring path.
Avoid Sinning With Help from the Lord
We can Avoid sin by staying in constant communication with the Spirit of our Lord and obeying his promptings. Many times we know what course of action is right, but we fail to ask for the strength to follow through on what we know to be righteous.
OlyLife prays that you will rely more on God to give you the strength to do the right thing when you are convicted by the Holy Spirit. When you take the right actions you are honoring God and making the most of your one and only life – That’s OlyLife!
