Where Will the Devil Find you?

In I Peter 5:8, the Apostle Peter warns his readers concerning the devil. He says that the devil prowls like a roaring lion seeking to devour and he seeks and knows where to find us in order to devour us.

For example, the devil found Samson in the arms of pagan and immoral women. He found Judas where power and money were traded. He found Jesus hungry and tired in the desert alone and struggling in the garden.

He always knows where to look in order to find and devour you. He finds you online because there is stuff there you should not see; in your car in heavy traffic when you are in a hurry and least patient; when you are broke and would compromise honesty and generosity to get what you want; after a fight, insult or offense when revenge is planned. He knows exactly where to find you in order to devour you and draw you into sin.

Of course, there are places where he cannot find you, places where his power cannot overcome you. This is when you are in the Word and prayer; worshipping, fellowshipping and serving with other Christians. These are places where he knows he is not welcome and his power is severely limited.

Here are a few things to remember the next time you sense him nearby:

If he has found you it is because you are where you are not supposed to be. Be aware and avoid the places where you know he is going to be.

When attacked, stand firm. How? Say no, ask God for help and He will defend you.

Try to fill your time with things and places where you know that God will be.

Things To Think Upon During The Lord's Supper

When you are thinking about the Lord’s Supper, what thoughts cross your mind, are you thinking about the Lord or what you are going to do after Church services. Do you think about what kind of sacrifice was made for you or the notification that just came in on your cell phone. I am going to make a suggestion, think about your covenant, your agreement with God.  Do you remember when you became a Christian, and you promised God you would honor Him by living as a Christian should?   The agreement was fairly simple, He agreed to be your God.  You agreed to be His child.  The Lord’s Supper is a meal you partake of, that also reflects your covenant with God, do this in remembrance of me.  1 Corinthians 11:24. The Lord’s Supper is a great time to examine our lives.  Am I keeping my end of the agreement?  The supper can be a moment of great resolve, to be all that we can be for the Lord. A time specifically set aside once a week to reflect on our relationship. Think about the body of the Lord.

Tolerance vs acceptance vs Christian living

One of the more recent issues in American society is the notion of tolerance for individuals, which like most things seems like a reasonable request. You should be able to as an adult tolerate someone else’s behavior meaning you do not have to like or appreciate what is happening, but just the sort of allowing them to do their own thing. The more common definition of word meaning the allowable deviation from a standard.  The real problem is the tolerance factor quickly shifted from allowing to accepting the deviation as it were. Suddenly it is no longer encouraged to promote Christian values, but to embrace those people and ideas that would oppose being a Christian. I would take it as one step further already and say that we are encouraged to embrace and promote sin versus living as a Christian. Before I go any further, I want to clarify Christians are commanded to love one another as stated in several passages of the Bible including John 15:12. There is no commandment to hate or harm

Welcome, come worship & study with us.

Our desire is to be pleasing to God in our worship, in our families, in our work-place and in our community. We are called to be holy, which is wholly devoted to God 24/7.  As stated in Romans 12:2 NIV "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Our goal is to become more like Christ as we love God with our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love and minister to others.  2nd Timothy 4:2-5 NIV  "Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your he
