Romans 12:9


Romans 12:9 Hate what is evil.


In theory, O Lord, this is simple, but in practice, impossible. For my sinful flesh lusts for what is forbidden and longs for what is prohibited. Every day I fight this intense battle against my sinful flesh. And I lose. Forgive me. Keep me from growing discouraged. Daily remind me of your relenting love that spared me from what I deserve – death and damnation, and gave me what I don’t deserve – forgiveness and salvation. In view of your mercy and grace embolden me to do away with the things in my life that feed my flesh and empower me to seek only what is good and holy and loving. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
