Day 16: Turn the other way
… and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God.
Jesus did not only come to save us from the consequences of sin, which is death, but He came to save us from sin. Sin, immoral acts against God’s law, is destructive. It destroys lives. In Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians he discloses how the church, when they received the forgiveness of sins, also turned from their sinful ways. Numerous times after Jesus had forgiven a person, He said: “Go and sin no more” (John. 5:14; 8:11). Ask the Holy Spirit today to reveal idols in your heart and turn from them to serve the living and true God and find freedom. As it is written: “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed”.
Prayer: Thank you Lord that you have set me free from sin. Help me Holy Spirit to turn to you anew, to turn the other way, to serve and love you fully.
