2009 Lenten Devotional and Prayer Guide

March 28

 

He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.”  (1 John 3:8)

 

By committing sin, we commit ourselves to the devil, for all who sin fall short of the glory of God and belong to the devil. Because of God’s infinite mercy, we are spared though His Son Jesus Christ who came to remove the stain of our sins and free us from the grasp of the devil. This is not something we can sit back and wait for though; we must work to end our sinful ways ourselves. While Jesus purifies us of our sins, He cannot stop us from sinning; the choice is ours. Choice led Eve to commit the original sin, and from that time forward it has been our choice whether or not we sin. So, we must work to end our sins and accept Jesus as our Savior and ask for His forgiveness to truly be free of the devil.  [Written by: Charles]
