Drugged and Robbed

Satan comes to steal and kill and destroy, we must lock our hearts in Christ
In 1993 we traveled by overnight train between Kiev and Moscow. 

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 ideas 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.

  2. You're so right Gail! The enemy is simply a thief and a liar looking to destroy. So grateful for God Himself and his vast array of tools equipped to protect us :) Thanks for the reminder. And that is SO cool that your daughter was a missionary to Russia!
