"Aware of the Enemy"

Dec 10, 2023    Pastor Logan Ames

"If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it" - Genesis 4:7

We clearly live during a time when the devil is right next to us, and his temptations are crouching at our door, yet we don't even see him. The world has confused what is good and what is evil, and sadly the Church has done little to bring clarity and truth. In some cases, the Church has muddied the waters even more! We are more distracted than ever, which makes us less aware of the enemy's schemes, which makes us more vulnerable than ever. The best way to decrease our vulnerability is to stay constantly alert and vigilant as the New Testament commands. We have to become familiar with the ways the devil will try to trap us, and then humbly submit to Christ and resist the devil. This week at Friendship, we will further discuss what it means to be "Aware of the Enemy", and we'll specifically talk about making sure we don't think too highly of ourselves, for it's when we think too highly of ourselves that we let our guard down and become most susceptible to him. We hope you'll join us for this very urgent instruction that impacts our every day!
