You Lying Little Snake (Part 2)

Bible Verse

Genesis 3:4 – But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.”

Your Discipleship Minute

First came the doubt.  Now we see the outright lie.

“You will not surely die.”

But they did die.  They died spiritually as soon as the sin was committed, but in His mercy, God allowed them to live out their physical lives on the earth before death finally claimed them in their old age.

Satan thought he had won the victory, and indeed he had won a battle, but God Himself had already written the outcome, and had a plan to save sinful men and women through the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Through faith in Jesus, Satan is defeated and we are restored to our right standing with God.

Praise God that the end was known before the beginning!

Action Point

Be on the lookout for the lies of Satan.  His tactics haven’t changed much since creation.  First he sends a seed of doubt then an outright lie about God and His Word.

Stay strong in the Bible and you won’t be fooled when Satan’s attack comes.

You Lying Little Snake (Part 1)

Bible Verse

Genesis 3:1 – Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”

Your Discipleship Minute

Doubt. The part of our selves that is always looking for the loophole.

Satan used it in the Garden to tempt Eve with disobeying God, and Satan has been using it ever since to tempt mankind into doing the same thing.

Doubt is a powerful thing because it is the opposite of faith.  Peter walked on the water by putting his faith in Jesus, but when he doubted, he sank like a stone.

Action Point

Faith is the key to living a victorious Christian life.  Ask God to show you areas in your life where doubt has replaced your faith and then confess those areas and give them to God in faith once more.
