 "But earnestly desire the best gifts. And yet I show you a more excellent way.”

(1 Corinthians 12:31)

 


Satan always gives the best first and the worst last. For example, Proverbs 20:17 says, “Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man, but afterward his mouth will be filled with gravel.”


With Satan, it always starts sweet, but it doesn’t end that way.

Satan is a counterfeiter and a deceiver. He’s guilty of false advertising. He always pulls a “bait and switch.” He doesn’t show the drunkard in the gutter covered with flies. He doesn’t show the addict shaking uncontrollably from another night of detox. He doesn’t show the ruined lives from sexually transmitted diseases. He always gives the best first and the worst last. It’s the opposite with Jesus: He gives the best last.


Please make sure you're listening to the right voice. Satan is out to steal, kill and destroy but Jesus comes to give you life more abundantly.
