I hope you have read part 1 of this short series and if not, I encourage you to do so. In this part I want to give you some definitions of 3 simple words in this subject and how we need to understand them. The first one is Tactics: an action or method that is planned and used to achieve a particular goal (definition from Merriam-Webster). In this case, Satan’s actions or methods against us are for you and me to stumble, to fall away from the things of God. For the unsaved, not to even know who God is, or have a relationship with Jesus Christ. For us as Believers to not even know who we are as Christians. And lastly for all of us to be divided, so that we cannot stand in Unity together as the true Body of Christ.
The second one is Beware: be cautious and alert to the dangers of (definition from Merriam-Webster). This one is for us; we must beware of Satan’s tactics every day. Being alert will cause us to know when the enemy is trying to trip us up, causing us to act accordingly as Christ would instead of reacting like the world. Sometimes including me, we may get rattled by someone or a circumstance and we start to react in a way that is not Christ-like. Those are the times when we have to be cautious and alert to the dangers of Satan’s traps which cause us to stumble or cause offense. These are the times when we need to collect ourselves, realize what is going on, and walk away or remind ourselves that we are supposed to be Christ-like and walk in love.
The third one is be Aware: having knowledge or perception of a situation or fact (definition from Merriam-Webster). Being aware is very important as Christian Men and Women because of the fact that Satan doesn’t like you or anything you stand for. Remember if we are aware that his goal is to Steal Kill and Destroy, we will be alert to his tactics and not fall into sin. We won’t hate others or reject others; we will love as Jesus taught us to. We will not cause friction between others. We need to be alert, be aware and also beware of Satan’s tactics! This is a strong warning for me and you all as well. The world is watching how we behave daily, and we need to represent Jesus Christ daily not only to the saved but also the unsaved. Stay tuned for part 3 of this important series God Bless You and Yours!
