Take Up Your Cross August 1st 2015

Has the devil enticed you into falling into the pleasures of sin in this world?

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. (1 John 2:16-17 KJV)

This world is a bustling habitat for the dark characteristics of the devil.  It has been said that this world is the devil’s playground but the reality is he is not playing games he is serious about capturing as many unsuspecting souls as he can using three ingredients: the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride.  Many souls are wounded spiritually be falling into temptations flavorfully baited by the devil.  He knows just how to appeal to every man drawing many unsuspecting targets into his spiritual traps by the enticement for pleasure and fun all the while hiding the true wage of sin.

The disciple of Christ can be completely covered from head to toe in blood bought armor to deflect and confound the enticement of the devil.  God understands first-hand the temptations the devil and his dark minions constantly allure simple men with.  God faced these same temptations when He was upon this earth in the flesh, but without sin.  God desires that each of His servants live in His Spirit and put on His spiritual armor to deflect and defuse the wiles of the devil as they sojourn upon this earth and possess eternal life in the heavenly realm.
