We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word and how it applies to us daily.
"We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one." -1 John 5:19
Who is the wicked one? None other than the father of lies, the accuser of the brethren - Satan. The point here is that we ought not be caught off guard; just as he writes, "he who is born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him."* First and foremost, the saints must know that we have an enemy - we are opposed! Secondly, we must know who our enemy is and that "he is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour."** Guard yourself! Be watchful! But do not be terrified! Take courage in the assurance that "He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world,"*** and fight on! By the Spirit of God wage the good warfare.
