Vital Signs - Wednesday, October 9, 2019

When the devil knocks, you don’t always hear it. He’d rather sneak in an open door. He’s the deceiver who targets your mind with lies and accusations accusations.

When you look in a dark room You see the dark. When you look at light you see the light. What happens when you put the light next to a dark room? You see the light. Light wins. Jesus showed the whole world the light in one verse.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”. John 10:10 NIV

But How does Satan destroy? He targets your will with pride. Pride is what convinces you to act without God. Pride comes before the fall.

How do we destroy pride then? Humbly surrender to the other side of John 10:10. Jesus gives life, and life to the full. Humility happens when you realize full life comes only when you receive what you don’t deserve from Jesus. It’s all a gift. It can’t be earned. Humble submission to Jesus defeats pride.
