TEXT: EPHESIANS 2:1-3
1And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Key Verse: Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Ephesians 2:3
Sin and Satan are the great damnable plagues of men on earth. Remove sin and Satan, man will have the comfort of life, man will have a wonderful relationship with God and relate wonderfully with his neighbors and enjoy the creation of God, but sin and Satan has brought man under the judgment of God. Satan tempts man to commit sin, rules man in sin and takes man to hell.
The Bible says the soul that sinneth it shall die. Anything that is sweet to you like alcohol will damn your soul eternally to hell. What is sin? It is something that makes you feel fine in your body. Immorality makes you feel fine in your body. Sin is something that promotes your life. Witchcraft, evil power promotes your life. Sin is something that makes success cheap in your life. You don’t suffer for what you steal. You’ll not suffer if you use lie to possess what you have. You can see what sin can do but the end of sin is death.
Satan came to steal, kill and destroy in hell fire. The aim of Satan is eternal destruction in hell fire. Satan knows that he has been condemned to eternal lake of fire and he does not want to go there alone but must carry human beings along, and the way to carry men along is to bring sin to them. To make them sin against God and God will be displeased with them and send them to hell. Because of this Jesus came to save man from sin and Satanic power and from eternal doom. Jesus came to destroy sin in your life and the works of Satan. He came to deliver man from the hand of Satan.
This should be the teaching of every preacher God has called to preach. His mind should be to rescue man from sin and Satan. If your preaching succeeds to deliver man from sin and Satan, then you are a true preacher indeed. The purpose of our calling into Christian ministry is to rescue man from sin and Satan. If this is not your focus, you have failed in ministry.
Thought for the day: Focus in ministry to rescue men from sin and Satan.
Song for the day: Mercy Oh Lord (2x) Father show us your mercy…
Bible Reading for the day: 1 Chronicles 20-22; John 10:22-42
