Know your real enemy
To have Life you must find Love. To find Love and know Love, true Love, you must know the real purpose of the enemy.
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” … 1 Peter 5:8
Its important to remember that following Christ is Not following law … its following Love. The devil only cares about you breaking a law If he can use it to create guilt and shame. Remember … “you are no longer under the law, you are under Grace”, “all things are lawful” … for more on this see the link at the bottom called “Let the Journey Begin.”
The reason why this is important to remember is that “God Is Love” and “Christ is the end of the law for all who believe” And “All Righteousness comes by Faith.”
Love, True Love from above Must start with a “sober mind” because only a “sober mind” thinking on “whatever is pure and lovely and right” will create love for self which is the origin of love for one another that Christ calls us to have. The real enemy starts with self hate.
Self hate Is the origin of human pain and suffering And the reason why Grace is So Very Important to undetstand. Over the next few devotionals we will discuss self hate vs. self love and how this Is the battle that will determine the life or lack of one that you will experience.
