Have you ever lied, stolen, or used God's name in vain? Jesus said, “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” If you have done these things, God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart, and the Bible warns that hell awaits you! “'Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Cor 6:9-10) If you are guilty of sinning, according to God's standard, you must resist sin.
“We are essentially good except for those few monsters such as murderers, rapists, and dictators!" The Bible shows us we are all born with a corrupt tendency toward evil. No one has to teach a child to lie, steal, throw a temper tantrum, hit a sibling or another child out of anger. The same tendency carries with us into adulthood. There is the seed of a murderer, rapist, and tyrant in every one of our hearts. This is not about what we've done but who we are. If you are going to be successful in resisting sin you must resist that corrupt self-centeredness. You must have your “old man” “crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth [you] should not serve sin.” (Rom 6:6 KJV)
The greatest deception in these days is that there is no such being as the devil. The devil is a keen and cunning foe. He would rather move undetected just like any criminal. The devil is out to destroy society, families, and individuals. Wherever there is a glimpse of true righteousness, the devil opposes with vehement hatred. The devil tries to cloud your mind, tempt you toward evil, and stir you up against God and humanity. The devil does not have a physical mouth or a body, so he seeks to use both the ignorant and the willing to accomplish his purposes “under the radar.” You must resist the devil!
The Bible tells us the world is controlled by the devil for he is “the god of this world” and “the prince of the power of the air.” The values of this world are at odds with God the Creator. The systems of this world have been created by the devil through evil people. Is it any wonder that the Bible tells us, “know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” (James 4:4) Not only do we have to resist the world, with its values and systems, from entering into our heart, we must also resist this world, and it's heinous master, from clutching the minds and hearts of people! All the souls of this world have been bought with the precious blood of Christ and every soul is rightfully His.
