Submissive Resistance

James 4:7Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. (NIV 1978)

My Musings – The key to avoid falling into sin: resist the devil. The key to resisting the devil: submitting to God.

My Advice – Satan does not like opposition. If you sincerely resist him, he will leave you alone, at least for the time being. He may try again, but the more you resist, the greater your ability to resist when he next returns.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
