It is better to build teens than to repair men and women.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

 


There is a tremendous battle raging in the spiritual world over you. Your eternal destination is at stake. There are two forces waging this battle: God and the devil.

God loves you with a love that can change your whole way of thinking, if you allow it. He paid a great price for your eternal life, but He will not demand that you submit to His authority. You need to want His ways and understand what He has done for you. He wants to give you an abundant life and eternity with Him.

On the other hand, the devil wants to destroy you. He is the thief and destroyer and he wants you. He wants to send you into his place for eternity and it is a place of agony. The devil uses lies and deceptions to lure you into pleasures that trap you and cause you distress. The price for his pleasures is sickness, distress and destruction.

Christians are not immune to the lures and traps of the devil. He will lead you to think that what you are doing is OK. He is subtle and will start you off with a seemingly harmless activity and gradually will add evil components. When you are comfortable with just a little compromise with what is right and true, the devil will add a new dimension of compromise, and then another until you are addicted to your sin.

A prime example of this addictive behavior is gaming. From the beginning of video games to the use of smart phones and I Pads, gaming is a national epidemic. Christians are involved in many of these games. Many of the games are demonic as well as violent. Just the violence should be a turn off for Christians who should be looking at what is good and pure and lovely.

Gaming is not the only avenue the devil uses to get your mind off of God and on to violence and evil. So many movies and TV shows have themes of graphic violence. Where we once did not show a “bad guy” getting shot, now we see all the gory details of killings. Add to the list the programs or movies featuring occult practices and there is little left to watch. Even associating with evil for “fun” or playing games, is harmful to your soul.

A steady diet of evil and violence will corrupt your soul. You can claim that you love Jesus, and you are safe from the evil effects of such shows, but you are mistaken. The Bible is specific about corrupting your life with the evil of the world.
 

  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14

The devil is darkness, and you should not have communion or any relationship with him or his ways. When you dabble, even a little bit, in things that are not godly, you are relating to the devil. Your mind is on things of the world rather than things of God.

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: Romans 8:1-16
 
You may want to side with God in the battle for your soul. Turn to Jesus and turn off the things of the flesh. Find your life in the things of the Spirit of God and rest in His love for you!
