Living on the offensive against the evil one
July 28, 2011
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
1 John 4:4
I love the story of “Shug” Jordan, who was the football coach at Auburn years ago. He and a recruiter were talking to some young ball players and the recruiter said, “There’s a certain kind of athlete that when you knock him down on the field, he stays down. Well, we don’t want him, do we, Coach?”
And Coach Jordan said, “Nope.”
Then the recruiter said, “But there’s another kind of athlete that when you knock him down, he gets back up. But you knock him down again, he stays down. We don’t him either, do we, Coach?”
Coach Jordan said, “No, we don’t want him either.”
Then he said, “But there’s another athlete that when you knock him down, he gets up. You knock him down again, he gets up again. You knock him down, he gets up! That’s the guy we want, isn’t it, Coach?”
Coach Jordan said, “No, we don’t want him either!”
So the recruiter said, “Well, who on earth do we want?”
Jordan replied, “We want the guy who’s knocking everybody down!”
In life’s spiritual battle, you’re much more than just a punching bag for Satan. You have the power of Christ in you to live in full victory over the evil one. So live on the offensive against the enemy by declaring God’s power in your life each day!
GOD HAS GIVEN YOU THE POWER TO LIVE IN VICTORY OVER SATAN. SO LIVE ON THE OFFENSIVE BY DECLARING GOD’S SPIRUTAL POWER IN YOUR LIFE EVERY DAY!
