Avoid Evil By Putting On The Armor Of God!
Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.
Avoiding evil may seem like an almost impossible feat, but let me assure you that it is definitely achievable. The key to avoiding evil lies in the realization that we are not our own – we have been purchased with a priceless gift: the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross for our sins. When we follow Him rather than succumbing to the temptations of this world or those of the devil, we can rest assured that though sin might temporarily bring pleasure, its consequences are dire and lead us down a path of destruction.
Doing the will of my flesh for immediate gratification is like choosing between crumbs now or waiting for a grand feast later by doing God’s will. Choosing immediate gratification through sin ultimately leads us to settle for less than what God has planned for us, leaving us dissatisfied and always wanting more. But even though our flesh may be weak and prone to temptation, we can resist evil by remembering who paid the ultimate price for our redemption and striving daily to live according to His perfect will. So take heart! Avoiding evil is tough but doable when you put your faith in Jesus Christ! Keeping a distance between you and sin, is wise, yet sometimes unavoidable, that is why prayer is so very critical to avoid evil. Do not fight evil with evil, but evil with good. ~ Bill Greguska

Some Specific Scriptures To Encourage You:
1 John 2:15-17 ESV
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide a way of escape so that you may be able to endure it.
Romans 12:2 ESV
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing, you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
