Adam’s Devotional – April 4-10, 2019

From Adam…

The devil did it!  We don’t really talk much about the devil.  Which could be a good thing, it could also be a bad thing.  After all, the greatest trick the devil ever pulled, was convincing the world he didn’t exist. (Thank you Usual Suspects, ask your parents) Jesus definitely thought the devil existed. Jesus was tempted by him in the desert right before he began his ministry. The third dessert temptation is all about power.  The devil offers Jesus all power and authority on earth. All it will cost is Jesus is his soul. All Jesus has to do is bow down and worship the devil. Obviously Jesus doesn’t do it, but how often do we face the same temptation? If we compromise our integrity to get ahead.  If we tell a little white lie here and there to get more influence and power. How much do we live and work to gain power, influence, and status, but along the way forfeit our own souls. Who or what are you worshiping right now? Is it power, popularity, and social status or is it God. God’s up to something . . . be a part of it.
