The Thief

John 10:10 says; "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly," Satan is only here to do one thing, destroy us. The closer we are to God, the better we are. Does it mean that satan won't attack us? No,he will, and he attacks those who are living for Christ. He already knows those who are away from Christ, he wants to destroy those who are close to Christ. I have a friend who says," Atleast we know we are living for Christ, since we are being attacked, nonstop!" We use that as a way for us to get through, knowing that we are serving Christ, and living for Him, we are getting attacked. The thief comes to our families, our schools, and towns, and our country. He touches those who are weak, and strong. The thief came, and almost destroyed my family, almost destroyed me. We cannot give in to him, we cannot let him have one cornerstone of our lives. He comes when we least expect it, and attacks with a vengence,for he does not want anything good to work for God. Though we already know how the chapter ends, we already know Christ is the winner, we may have to suffer long. Is it worth it? Is it worth the hurt? I have to say yes, it is,since I know Christ is my Savior and He will overcome, and He is there for us when the thief strikes. God can change all into the good of eternity. Get close to Christ, and watch out for the thief, who will stike, but we can be prepared, by knowing God's word, and the will of God. We have nothing to fear. Fear does not come from God. With God we can have peace knowing He is in control. Jer.29:11.
