Satan Has a Plan for Your Life?

As a follow-up to my post on loving God by not sinning against Him I wanted to provide a 3-part post from a few years ago regarding sin. Specifically, it addresses how Satan schemes and deceives us into sinning and how we can protect ourselves. The title is “The Devil Made Me Do It?” You can find the three posts below.

The Devil Made Me Do It? Part 3

From 2011

the_devil_made_me_do_it

Part 1 was about knowing that there is a spiritual war taking place, that the enemy is Satan and his legions of followers, and how they attack.

Part 2 was about the belt of truth – His Word, His love letter to us.  We need to not only read the Bible but meditate on it, “hide it in our hearts,” then call on His words, and rely on God’s supernatural protection to defeat Satan.  We cannot do it on our own, but we need to do our part.

Part 3 continues Read the rest of this entry »

The Devil Made Me Do It? Part 2

From 2011

the_devil_made_me_do_itAs I stated in part 1, most of us remember this line made famous by Flip Wilson’s character Geraldine on the 1970’s TV program “The Flip Wilson Show.”

But is this really true? Does Satan make us sin? It was a funny line on the TV show but a not-so-funny subject.

From part 1 last week we now know that there is a spiritual war taking place, that the enemy is Satan and his legions of followers, and how they attack.

#1 – Lets go back to how Satan attacks, Read the rest of this entry »

Love Hurts?

love hurts

I have been writing about how the Bible can be summarized by Matthew 22:36-40: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

These verses can be summarized as: love God; love people. Last week I wrote that because we love God and we are in a relationship with Him we will want to spend time with Him. Love is not about rules but about a relationship (Love Rules?).

How else are we to love God? Read the rest of this entry »

Love Rules?

Love Rules

I recently posted about life not being complicated (Life’s Complicated?) which attempted to answer the question: With all of the verses, commandments and instructions in the Bible how do we know what to do?

Jesus answered this in Matthew 22:36-40: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

These verses can be summarized by: love God; love people. So how do we do that? Specifically, how do we love God? Read the rest of this entry »
