In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Wicked Witch.”
Evil is anything that is separated, or creates separation from God. By that definition every single human being is evil, because we are separated from God because of our own desires. But it is by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ that we are no longer separated by evil. Therefore, I do not believe in this definition. Every human soul has the opportunity to accept or reject Jesus Christ’ free gift of salvation.
We all have selfishness within our hearts. It is human nature to strive for and think only of what is best for our own survival. However, there are rare moments of God’s Grace witnessed through the actions of a selfless few.
As I see it, evil is anything that creates an unchangeable course selected by The Devil. Evil is not a choice made by human means, but a tool used by Satan to direct a path in his needs and not the needs of The Father in Heaven. Evil needs not win and I wish to share with you today that it will not win!!!
By Jesus sacrifice and resurrection from the cross we have a free gift away from all evil. And it can begin today. I promise you that when you accept the free gift of Jesus Christ into your heart and full-heartedly mean it, His Holy Spirit, which is alive and well today, will come in and cleanse us all from any and all evil!! 1 John 1:8 promises, “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. But, if we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (evil).
When you wholeheartedly commit your life to Christ the old has been washed away and He will create a new spirit within you that will create His Will within your life.
