Abhor that which is evil
<p>" Abhor that which is evil—cleave to that which is good ." Romans 12:9
Evil, or wickedness, is the abominable thing that God hates. God's children are called to be imitators of Him—and to this end He gives them His Spirit and His grace.
If evil is merely avoided, while the love of it is cherished—the heart is not right in the sight of God. Only hatred to sin leads to habitual watchfulness against it, and to prayer for deliverance from its power.
O Lord, show me more of the exceeding sinfulness of sin—and grant me to hate it with a perfect hatred.
As its presence within is discovered—may I feel my vileness, abhor myself, and cleave closely to Him who shed His precious blood, and died on the cross to deliver me from the guilt of sin, and who lives to save me from its power.
May I not only abhor that which is evil—but may I love and cleave to that which is good. May I delight in Your law after the inward man—and follow after holiness, purity, and charity.
