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.

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

The Modern Church

It seems that there are three elements that help identify the "modern" church. One is a focus on music in worship. Orchestras, choirs, even drama with music are a must if a church is to appeal to today's church goer. Another is the preoccupation with the miraculous. People want to go to a place where God reveals Himself to the congregation through healings, tongues, and a sure vision and knowledge of when the end times are coming. Of course the modern church would not be complete without the presence of women in leadership roles as pastors and evangelists. This reflects the status of women in the secular world and is usually the final proof that a church is truly a contemporary one keeping up with modern society. As members of a New Testament churches these changes may seem a little discouraging because we believe that the Bible teaches us to only use vocal praise in public worship (Eph. 5:18-19); the end of miraculous gifts at the close of the Apostolic era (I Cor. 13:8-
