Spiritual Warfare: 'Don't Be Led in the Wrong Way'

God's Power for Our Battles — Tuesday, July 26, 2022

Dear children, do not let anyone lead you the wrong way. Christ is righteous. So to be like Christ a person must do what is right. The devil has been sinning since the beginning, so anyone who continues to sin belongs to the devil. The Son of God came for this purpose: to destroy the devil’s work.
— 1 John 3:7-8 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, lead me. Don’t let me be lead astray. Don’t let me follow a pathway of evil and sin, Lord, but help me to reject a life of sin and choose to follow Jesus. Remind me that if I continue in sin, that there ultimately won’t be any sacrifice to take away my sins (Hebrews 10:26). Help me to repent of my past wrongs, and follow the way of Christ—the way of love and forgiveness. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
