Jackie Hill-Perry spoke to The Gospel Coalition about how to resist the temptation to sin.

“I really work hard at trying to love Jesus more,” said Hill-Perry when temptations creep in. “[God says] If you love Me, you will obey Me.”

She said reading the Bible and really pressing in to understand what it means helps her to follow God’s path.

“How I resist sin, is doing what I gotta do to see Jesus. That’s getting into His scriptures and getting in my heart.”

Another way Hill-Perry resists sins is getting into a community of other believers. She also feels listening to worship that focuses on the truth of Jesus is a constant reminder of where she strives to be in Christ.
