Being a born again Christian does not mean you are exempt from the attacks of the enemy. Just because the devil shows up and “invites” you to the party, don’t ever think salvation has failed you. Salvation is what enables you to look the devil square in the eye, say “In Jesus name get behind me Satan” and perservere through the fire! The devil will always tempt you, try to confuse you and down right lie to you. It is not us though that the devil hates, it is our Lord Jesus Christ. To the enemy we are a pawn, we are what he uses to vex the Holy Spirit within us. When Jesus died for us on the Cross, he paid the price for all satan could ever do to us so we would never have to suffer the wages of sin. Jesus has already defeated evil on our behalf. To the Lord we are a precious child of God, made in His image, perfect in every way. There is literally no greater love than the love Jesus has for each of us. The war the enemy wages against us is hard. However, God sent His son Jesus to die on the Cross for our salvation, sent His Holy Spirit to comfort us and gave us His Word to instruct us. We already have dominion over our flesh, the world and the devil. Romans 6:14 “For sin shall not have dominion over you” – Praise God!
