Don't Be Deceived

“Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 3: 12 King James Version

I received an email yesterday in response to one of my writings and the person said “I am exactly where I need to be in all levels of my life”. O my friends, don’t be deceived. None of us are perfect and this is one of the ways that satan tries to get the victory over us. There is always something that we could have done or said to encourage someone, and failed to do so.

We are in a battle with satan and the world. Yes, the Victory has already been won through the Precious, Atoning Blood of our Saviour, but satan still attacks us.

The more that I learn about the Heart of Jesus, the more I realize that I have a long way to go to make Him happy. However, He knows my heart and He knows how much I love Him. If we really love Him with all our hearts, then He will help us with the daily attacks from satan.

Have you searched your heart today? Is your heart pleasing to Jesus? Are you allowing His Love to flow through you to your family, loved ones, and friends? When people look at you, do they see a smile on your face, or do they see a frown. There is no such thing as a gloomy Christian.

Fall in love with Jesus today. Give Him control of your heart and everything that you say or do. Allow Him to Love through you so that people who are hurting will feel the Peace that only Jesus can give to us.
