Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. (1 Peter 2:11, ESV)
There is a war going on, a spiritual battle. The prize is a person’s soul. Want to win? Abstain from fleshly lusts. A sure fire weapon against the enemy. Give in and you get blasted. You’ll become one of the bleeding, shredded souls that wonder aimlessly without discipline.
Prayer: Lord, defend me as I struggle to honor your name.
