I Take My Responsibilities Incredibly Seriously

“If war is forced upon us — and I say “forced upon us,” because use of the military is not my first choice. I hug the mothers and the widows of those who may have lost their life in the name of peace and freedom. I take my responsibilities incredibly seriously about the commitment of troops. But should we need to use troops, for the sake of future generations of Americans, American troops will act in the honorable traditions of our military and in the highest moral traditions of our country.” –President G. W. Bush
As our country faces war, it is comforting to know that our President takes his job so seriously. There is also going on right now a war against Satan (Eph. 6:10-13). I hope we take that war just as seriously.
Peter reminds us, ?Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts, which wage war against the soul? (1 Pet. 2:11).
Wars are not battles but series of battles, fought until one side completely conquers the other. Satan knows how to tempt and tempt again.
In Luke 4:13, after Satan had tempted Jesus, the Bible says, ?And when the devil had finished every temptation, he departed from Him until an opportune time.?
The devil didn?t quit because he lost this round; he went away to plan for another day. Beware of Satan! He may show up when you least expect him.
