As Christians we all may have been in situations where we knowingly or unknowingly compete either for leadership, status, or role. The disciples themselves got caught up in their need to see who was greatest among them.
Is your heart and mind in the right place when you enter the presence of God? Has your spiritual life become a habit instead of an attitude of devotion and praise? Let us be like David who said “You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.” Psalm 63:1
The devil wants the saved ones. HE already has in his pocket the unsaved …. but he will do anything to get the saved. Are you praying daily for your friends and their fight with the evil one? Are you willing to go to battle for your loved ones?
