My daughter showed me a YouTube video today. It only took a minute to realize this is what I wanted to post today. And I will pat myself on the back if I can actually link it up correctly!
My church's pastor presented this for the 7th and 8th graders on a retreat last weekend. It left an impression on my daughter, because she had a need to share it with me. And yet despite her desire to share it with me, she told me I probably wouldn't like it. Oh was she wrong!
I've heard a lot of sermons in my lifetime. (Refer to first post if knowing my age is important to you.) I've heard how
God loves me.
God saves me.
God sacrificed his Son for me.
God gives abundant grace.
These are really, really good things to hear.
But in my lifetime, how many sermons have I heard about the Devil?
Not devil with a small 'd'. The Devil. Satan.
God's rival and, therefore, my rival.
If he's my enemy, how do I protect myself? How does he operate? What are his MO's? The answers are, of course, in the Bible. But indulge me with this song. It's not your typical Sunday School song.
Take a listen.
