|Our daughter as a missionary in Moscow in 1994|
Our tour guide gave us explicit instructions about the necessity of locking our sleeping berth. They’d had a number of problems with thieves sending sleeping gas into the ventilation system and then robbing passengers while they slept.
Thieves can be quite devious. And it’s no wonder since they get their cues from the cunning, wicked master of thievery, Satan.
And just like our tour guide, God gives us explicit instructions for avoiding this thief. In fact, the Bible is full of stories, examples, and commands to help us avoid this wicked being who robs some people of eternal life and others of deeper devotion to God.
“The Thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.” Jesus (John 10:10, NIV).
This is another reason we must study God's Word--so we keep our hearts and minds "locked" from the Enemy.
