Aiding and Abetting

Aiding and Abetting…

Satan is called “the enemy.” An enemy is one who’s against you. “An enemy” has to be the enemy of someone or something. “Enemy” is a relative word. But “the” is not a relative word. It’s objective.

Thus Satan is called “the enemy” because no matter who you are, he’s your enemy. So it’s not just that “the enemy” is the enemy of God – he’s just as much personally the enemy of you. He’s the enemy of your soul. He’s personally against everything you are in God.

Thus you have to start taking him personally. Whenever you engage in sin–that action, that thought, that indulgence – you’re not just engaging in the enemy’s domain, you’re actually aiding and abetting the enemy of your soul. You’re actually joining forces against yourself. So any and every partaking or indulgence in sin is actually an act of war against your own life.

1 Peter 2:11 says, “Abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul.” Stop aiding and abetting the enemy. For that sin is not only that which goes against God, it’s that which goes against you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
