The world has gone mad, and it seems like more and more people are worshipping the devil. Remember, there is no middle ground; you are either with God or against him. You can’t dance with the devil all week long and be a Christ-follower; it doesn’t work that way. God expects his children to toe the line, keep his commandments, and make him our priority. We’re not perfect and will sin occasionally, but we will feel the full force of condemnation because we know we’ve disappointed the Father. That’s the difference between a true Christ-follower and a liar. There is something else; if you follow Jesus, there is protection from the devil. I find that comforting. The Holy Spirit resides within us, so the devil cannot penetrate our hearts, and we are protected from eternal demise. The critical point is to make God your priority, and everything else will fall perfectly into place.
We know that everyone who has been born of God does not keep on sinning, but he who was born of God protects him, and the evil one does not touch him. 1 John 5:18
