Sinful Habits

In our Bible Reading today, we learn that Paul did miracles and healed people who had evil spirits. Other people saw what Paul did and “gave great honor to Jesus” (verse 17b).
These people decided to give up their sinful habits and follow Jesus. Some people who had used magic burned their magic books. This showed that they truly wanted to give up their old life of sin and follow Jesus.
When we become Christians, we need to give up our sinful habits. We may need to throw away dirty magazines or movies, or stop going to certain places. We may need to discipline ourselves to focus on Jesus instead of our old sins.
Maybe there is something that you need to throw out of your life today. Focus on Jesus. He will help you live a life that pleases Him.
