SATAN’S PLAN TO DEFEAT THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH

There are some Christian leaders who never talk about Satan and others who talk incessantly about him. You know what I mean. In the case of the latter, every time the toast burns or something doesn’t go their way, Satan is behind it and it’s time for an exorcism. Neither extreme is particularly helpful. In a similar way, the greatest mistake I believe you can make with evil is to overestimate or underestimate its influence. It doesn’t have the ultimate power, but it also isn’t powerless. Evil is active. And in some way, it’s probably influencing your thought life, ministry, and family right now. At least that’s what the scriptures claim. And Jesus himself acted as though evil was very real. Satan and his demons are very real forces in the world today. But they are also forces that are under the authority of Jesus Christ. And as long as we too are living under Christ’s authority and protection, we have no reason to fear them. With non-Christians, the goal is to use them as instruments to fulfill Satan’s plan and to blind them to the gospel and even kill them before they have a chance to trust in Christ. But demons can also affect believers, as well. They can bring temptation, depression, and suicidal thoughts into our lives. If Satan cannot destroy your soul, he will attempt to destroy your witness and rob you of your joy in Christ. So how can we successfully combat these very real forces that seek to oppress and destroy us? Here are four practical principles for defeating the power of demons in your life.

Receive Christ as your Savior
