We have passwords applied to our online bank accounts, security systems installed in our homes and customized locks set on our smart phone screens. We go to great lengths to protect the things that are most valuable to us. But when it comes to spiritual matters, where does our security lie? How can we protect ourselves against the inevitable attacks of the enemy?
When Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, he started by attacking his identity and he?s still using that same tactic against us today. If you?ve found yourself doubting and wondering whether you?re truly loved and forgiven, it?s time to arm yourself with the truth of God?s Word and learn how to actively avoid a spiritual identity crisis.
In the Christian life, temptation simply comes with the territory. In fact, even Jesus Himself was tempted by Satan while he walked the earth. As we look to the example of Christ, we?ll find that Satan?s authority simply falls short in the lives of God?s people. Jesus already won the battle so we can have victory over temptation!
Armies rely on spies to gather intelligence about their enemy?s strategy. The side that is able to anticipate their opponent?s next move is the one that will usually win the battle. In our spiritual war against Satan, we have the advantage of already knowing the enemy?s plan. All the strategic intelligence we need is available for us right in God?s Word.
Studying end times theology inevitably raises many questions. What is the Great Tribulation? Who is the Antichrist? When are the last days? And shouldn?t we just ask God to airlift us out when times get tough? A closer look at Revelation chapter 3 reveals that we?re living in those last days now ? in a unique time in history that can be referred to as ?the already, but not yet.?
Children often pass blame and point fingers to avoid punishment. But in the early chapters of Genesis, we find that adults can play the blame game too. The story of Adam and Eve?s fall in the Garden of Eden features the very first lie ever told, the first bad decision ever made and the first breach of man?s contract with his Creator.
Luther once stated that God?s Word will either keep us from sin, or sin will keep us from God?s Word. And, in fact, Satan is counting on that to be true! Our enemy has been planting seeds of doubt into the hearts of believers since the beginning. And while he may no longer come in the form of a serpent, he is still looking for ways to intrude into our lives today.
For centuries, Christians have debated about the best way to approach our fallen world. Should we hide from it or perhaps just ignore it? The reality is that a spiritual war is constantly waging between the powers of good and evil and as believers, there is no hiding or ignoring it?we are called to engage in that war, armed with the truth of God?s Word as our weapon.
In a society obsessed with personal rights and freedoms, it?s counter-cultural to imagine that human beings could possibly be in bondage to anyone or anything. But Scripture tells us that we are just that ? we are, in fact, salves to sin. The good news is that true, spiritual freedom is possible and today, we?ll find out how!
In the book of Ephesians, Paul uses a medical metaphor to describe the truly hopeless state of humanity, apart from God?s grace. Does he describe us as spiritually bedridden or maybe terminally ill? Paul?s diagnosis may be bleak, but today we?ll discover that, because of God?s ultimate plan, our spiritual condition is not hopeless after all.
