When It Comes to the Devil… How to Think
from Love Worth Finding and Pastor Adrian Rogers
“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.” - Romans 12:21
There are two mistakes people make about the devil. One, they get into demonology—always studying, wondering, and talking about demons. Their focus rests on Satan rather than on the Lord Jesus. The Bible says we’re to resist the devil; it doesn’t say we’re to chase him.
On the other hand, there are those who are flippant about the devil. They have nicknames for him and think he’s a cartoon or fantasy.
The truth is, we have a powerful adversary, the devil. Peter likens him to a roaring lion! A mature Christian recognizes that he has an enemy. He respects the power of the enemy. Then he clings to the power of the Lord Jesus Christ to overcome this great adversary.
Is the lion prowling around your life? Take up the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and break free from his jaws of destruction.
