So what’s your reason for thinking Satan is alive and well and living on planet earth? What”s your reason for believing Satan is having his way? The homosexual agenda? Gay marriage? Shooting rampages? Maybe it’s the federal budget or NSA spying or Obama care. I think it’s something different, something far more insidious and sinister, something that we as Christians have maybe unsuspectingly had a hand in.
All those things I listed above, all those things and more, have trapped the headlines. All those things have become the noise, the shouting that dominates our lives. And for all that noise, for all that shouting the name of Jesus has dropped out of the conversation, at least in public discourse. What a tragedy. After all the great commission is to preach the gospel, the good news, to all the world.
We want to stop Satan in his tracks? How do we do it? A new administration? New laws on the books? I don’t think so. I don’t think Satan gets upset in the least at the mention of politicians or pundits or preachers. I think the one name that gets Satan’s attention…
…is the Name of Jesus Christ.
