Satan’s trick : I deal in hope

I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Devotion Staying on Track—Don’t Be Misled

Satan doesn’t care how He gets God’s people off track as long as he does so. One way he trips us up is to get us entangled with details of life and faith that take time and energy, but that leads others away rather than to Christ, divides rather than unifies, and makes us more concerned with format and legalism than a living relationship with and faith in Jesus.

Timothy 1:3c-5 …charge some that they teach no other doctrine, Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. Now the end of the commandment is love out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of true faith:

We need to be wise to Satan’s tricks, and always, always realize we are saved by God’s gift of grace not by works which we do. It’s about allowing Jesus Lordship in our lives, not about earning our way. About following Him, not me.

I Timothy 1:15 (KJV) This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
