Killing Sin

Killing Sin – Day 4

Today’s the last day of the devotional Killing Sin. It’s interesting as the order changed from what I had looked at yesterday when I was finishing our last devotion on the 10 Challenges Every Dad Must Conquer. It’s a shorter devotional in that it is only 4 days long. This devotional was provided by Moody Publishers which has a great number of reading resources. Checking out the description of the devotional it shares the following: “If you feel like you’re on the losing end of sin, and shame has you hiding out in the basement of life, God has a plan for you to win and the power to pull it off. It’s time to put to death those sins that have been killing you. In this four-day study, you’ll learn about God’s strategy for dealing with sin and living in freedom.” Are you ready to jump in and grab hold of this freedom? Are you ready to jump in and hear God’s strategy to help us be the dads God created and purposed for us to be? Are you ready to journey with me through these 4 days? Let’s get started!


Today’s devotional gets us digging into the following scriptures:


‘So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. ‘

Galatians 5:16

‘For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. ‘

Romans 8:13

Ever felt like you were being bombarded by things and needing a peace that surpasses all understanding? Ever felt like you were being bombarded by things and needing wisdom and discernment? Ever felt like you were being bombarded by things and needing direction in which way to go? Ever felt like you were being bombarded by things and needing instruction in what to do? What did you do? Where did you turn? How were you able to decide? Let’s be the dads who turn to God! Let’s be the dads ask the Holy Spirit, right there, at that moment to speak to us! Let’s be the dads who pause long enough to hear from the Spirit and obey so that we don’t allow lies or temptations to drag us off course! Let’s be the dads who are sensitive to the prompting of the Spirit so that we respond and act out of His leading and guiding! Let’s be the dads who are sensitive to the leading and guiding of the Spirit so that what we choose to produce is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control! Let’s be the dads who are more interested in pleasing God than pleasing man! Let’s be the dads who are more interested in doing what God has created us to do and share the love, the light, and the hope of the world with our wives, our kids, and the world around us! Let’s be the dads who are living life to the full and when needed use words to express our faith and trust in Jesus! Let’s be the dads who are living our lives with Jesus and others can see it even when we don’t say anything! Let’s be the dads whose love is active! Let’s be the dads who are salt and light! Let’s be the dads God needs for us to be and become! Let’s be the dads who are ready and prepared to share the Good News with others, especially our kids! Let’s make today count!
