Defeating the Lion

Sunday, March 23, 2003  4:00 a.m.

Dear Dairy,

Satan is a roaring lion and he is always out to get us.  We are powerless against him in our own strength.  It is only through Christ can we conquer him.  There are three ways to overcome Satan, that roaring lion.  First, is by the blood of Jesus Christ.  Only by the blood of the Lamb of God can we defeat Satan and cover our sins.  Second, is by reading and quoting the Word of God.  The Word shall stand for ever. Jesus is the Word come in the flesh, full of grace and truth.  Third, is by the sacrifice of our lives for and to Christ.  Revelations 12:11 says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”  The sacrifice is that we can give our lives for Christ.  Don’t hold on to what you can’t keep, but cling to what you can’t lose.

Thought for Today:  The blood of Christ cleanses us from our sins, the Word is a light unto our path, and the sacrifice of our life is what we can give.
