Thought of the Day February 7, 2024 Reject the works of Satan

By 10:35 AM

 As we enter into Lent, we are called to not only reject the temptations of Satan but also to reject his works. The works of Satan are the variety of sins that have been part of our journey since baptism. It was not that the fruit of the tree was not something to desire for Eve and Adam, but it was what acting on that desire would mean to their relationship with God. In other words, it wasn't the fruit that was the sin. It was their disobedience to God and their desire to be equal to God that was sinful. Paul reminds us that there is a law of sin within us.  This is what we are called to reject. Paul did by turning to Jesus for his help. "Our help is in the name of the Lord."
