How to keep yourself from backsliding.

Pay close attention to matters of the heart. The Christian life is about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Avoid focusing primarily on a list of dos and don’ts. Stay close to the Lord throughout each day. Keep your heart and mind upon the kingdom of God.

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. (Prov. 4:23, NIV)

Beware of the enemy’s schemes. Flee from situations that tempt you. Rebuke Satan when he attacks you. Have a trusted prayer partner that you can share your personal struggles with.

Now flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. (2 Timothy 2:22)

Finally, let the Holy Spirit lead you, fill you, encourage you, and empower you as you go through the day.

If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. (Galatians 5:25)
