I follow this gal on Instagram, and she was telling us about an experience that she had were these two girls got into the back seat of her car while she is parked waiting for her food delivery. They thought it was their ordered taxi service.
Can you believe that? They didn’t check to see if the car matched up with their order, or look for a logo, or whatever else they could have done to keep themselves safe.
The new taxi services have made it so easy for someone to get kidnapped, and that is so scary!
It made me think about all the ways that Satan tries to capture us. Satan tries to make it easy for us to be taken by him tricking us into sin. He knows just how to get us in his car. Paul alluded to the first sin in the Garden of Eden in 2 Corinthians 11:3. “And now I’m afraid that exactly as the Snake seduced Eve with his smooth patter, you are being lured away from the simple purity of your love for Christ.”
We are no different than Adam and Eve in the garden. We can easily be tempted by Satan because he is crafty and spins the truth into our own deceit. 1 Peter 5:8, “Be serious! Be alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.”
We must be in the Word so that we know what our enemy looks like because we know so well what our God looks like.
I challenge you to get into the Word more. Read the love letters that Christ has written us and learn more about Him. Stay strong in the Lord so that you are not so easily deceived.
