Thought of the Day March 8. 2024 Lent: avoid sin

By 11:03 AM

 One of the ways we show our love for God is to avoid sin as much as possible. This can only be done with his grace, of course. But it takes an intentional decision on our part to recognize the temptation and to choose to love God rather than to satisfy ourselves. Like Jesus has shown us, we keep our eyes on the Father and remember his love for us. That is what it means to love God with our whole being. Every part of our being is given to the praise, honor and service of God. It is not the fear of punishment that motivates us, but the love for the God who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing. This is not easy. We may fall short at times, like Peter. But if God's love for us is important, we will learn how to grow in our choice to love him rather than sin.
