“Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in fear of God.” -2 Corinthians 7:1
We know that the devil has come to kill steal and destroy, right? We may be deceiving our selves by thinking he is still coming after us. When the truth is that he already came and has been conquered. The truth is that his presence in this world has left a permanent scar in our flesh and in this world. Our flesh and that spirit in the world from the moment we are concieved is actively working against us. Daily we are reminding of our fallen nature, constantly lusting, easily distracted, easily attracted and seeking satisfaction.
The devil no longer has a hold of us. Jesus came to conqueror the devil and to destroy his works both in us and in the world. Therefore, after coming to really know Christ. We can no longer blame our actions on the devil since he has been defeated. The power of His blood has now given us the ability to see the schemes and deceit actively working in and all around us. Today we are able to be aware of temptation and pit falls to prevent us from falling. Giving us the power to walk in holiness. Yes, be holy just as he was and is holy.
I have had my own convictions about digital use and misuse and have had to make adjustments in my life so to not be robbed. Technology if misused can steal, kill and destroy your TIME, your RELATIONSHIPS and your HEALTH. How can we remain pure in this world? I believe that we all need to take a step back and allow God to examine this area of our lives. I believe we all need to be aware of the new age traps that are affecting all our lives. Let us prayerfully ask God to reveal to us how we may be compromising and contaminating our minds, bodies and souls through technology. I urge you to take the time to listen to the link below & share with others. Begin using technology for the Glory of God!! 🙂
