War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds

He is there! It’s rather unnerving, but he is. Wherever you go, whatever you are doing, whether you are aware of him or not, he is there! And he knows you better than you know yourself. He knows your likes and dislikes, your strengths and your weaknesses. He knows what is going on in your life and how your circumstances are affecting you. Yes, he’s there. 

You might be guessing that “he” is Jesus, but in this case, no, the “he” is Satan. As frightening as it is, we need to be conscious of the fact that we are engaged in a war of eternal consequences each and every day of our lives. Far from conceding Christians to the cause of Christ, Satan works overtime to lure believers away from their Savior. This is his only goal, to take people away from Jesus, by whatever means are most effective. 

We can’t see him. We aren’t always sure of what he is trying to lead us to do or think. But most Christians do sense that there is some kind of force operating in their lives that is in direct conflict with Jesus. This shouldn’t surprise us, knowing that Jesus himself was tempted by Satan throughout his time on this earth. One Bible writer says that Christ knows exactly what we go through as he was tempted in every way, just as we are. The one difference being, he didn’t give in to temptation – he didn’t sin. 

How is the war going in your life? Do you sense Jesus pulling you more and more to his side? Or, are you living a yo-yo spiritual life, one day walking on the dark side, one day in the light? The first step in winning this war is to acknowledge it is going on! The next, is to learn how Christ overcame Satan and how that applies to us. The one thing you don’t want to do is ignore the war. The consequences of that kind of disregard are too horrible to consider. Join us for our worship service this Sunday morning. The good news is, because of Christ, there isn’t any reason any one of us should lose this war!
