Satan’s condemnation brings no repentance or resolve, just regret!
Satan has come to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10).
To steal your peace, kill your dreams, and destroy your future.
Satan has deputized people to peddle his poison.
Friends dredge up your past.
Preachers proclaim all guilt and no grace.
And parents, oh, your parents. “Why can’t you grow up?” they say. “When are you going to make me proud?” they say.
But your accusers will not have the last word!
Jesus has acted on your behalf. Jesus Christ has risen to your defense.
Hebrews 10:22 urges “. . .let us come near to God with a sincere heart and a sure faith, because we have been made free from a guilty conscience.”
Not just for our past mistakes but also for our future ones. Behold the fruit of grace: saved by God, raised by God, seated with God! Gifted, equipped, and commissioned!
