1 Timothy 1:19 “Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear. For some people have deliberately violated their consciences; as a result, their faith has been shipwrecked.”
I heard that Satan know that he is a defeated foe because of the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. That whoever believes in Him, their blessed Savior is in the hand of the Lord, He has given them eternal life, and they shall never perish; He has given then eternal life. Neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand – John 10:28.
The devil knows that it is only a matter of time till he is thrown into the “Lake of Fire” for eternity (Revelation 20:10), but he wants to increase the population of Hell by deceiving and taking as many of us as he can with him. Satan tempts and deceives with lies to distract our attention away from the only One who can save us from our sins and true life. I picture the devil with both hands upon us trying to pull us away as we cling with all our might with both arms around and hands clasped together, clinging for dear life to Jesus.
Where is our faith? Who is our Lord? Who or what are we clinging to? Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Nobody comes to the Father except by Him alone (John 14:6).
Romans 8:35 “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”
No one, when you cling to Jesus.
In Christ, Brian
