22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. – 1 Thessalonians 5:22 KJV

Hello family,  Abstain: “to refrain deliberately and often with an effort of self-denial from an action or practice.” When we hear “resist the devil and he will flee from you – James 4:7, we don’t always receive it as a call to action. Typically when i hear resist i think about digging my heals in and bracing for what ever is coming, but it is so much more.

Think of a tug-o-war, two groups of people give their all to keep the other side from pulling them over. If in there you are not just standing their but you and your teammates move in the opposite direction, away from the other team. You are Abstaining from the other team. you see evil coming do ALL YOU CAN to get way from it! if it has half a sent of evil abstain from it! Not just the big things but the tiny innocent looking stuff too!        

Much Love & God Bless

  1. The devil does a great job too often, of convincing us that this little thing is so tiny, such a harmless self-indulgence, so unworthy of a big fuss or strong resistance. So the little things, like strands of spider’s web, wrap around us.

    One day a relative was saying, “I could quit smoking anytime I want to. I just don’t want to.” And I thought to myself, “It may be you don’t want to, but if you ever did try to quit, you’d soon find out who’s the master and who’s the slave.”

    That’s the acid test. Can you drop it when you want to?
