The Love of God: 5.5″ square

January 12, 2015

_ccrl The Love of God
For this is what the love of God means, that we observe his commandments;

and yet his commandments are not burdensome.

1 John 5:3

Another method Satan uses to turn people away from living in a way that pleases God is more subtle than outright opposition and persecution. 2 Corinthians 11:14 says, “Satan himself keeps disguising himself as an angel of light.” So we can expect misinformation and misdirection to be features of this aspect. We can keep on our guard against this by using the Bible as a filter when examining spiritual concepts. God’s word is truth, so anything that contradicts it or is out of harmony with it won’t pass through the “filter” and is wisely discarded.

Satan also loves to use discouragement because it’s a powerful weapon in making people feel that they are not good enough to serve God. (Proverbs 24:10) That is a particularly cowardly and vicious lie. God’s Son died for all, so that all who exercise faith in him might have everlasting life. Although we are imperfect, we can have a good relationship with Jehovah through the ransom sacrifice of Jesus, by finding out how to live in a way that pleases God.

Whether he uses outright opposition and persecution, or more subtle means, the Devil’s challenge is that if he makes it hard for us, we will not serve God. But Job kept his integrity and so can we.Doodles076 copy_juno Couture Papers 2
