SATAN DEMANDED TO HAVE YOU (1)
When a person makes the decision to follow Jesus in baptism, something totally new happens at the spiritual level. He becomes united with Christ. This spiritual and somewhat mystical union brings that person into the realities of the spiritual world. And part of the spiritual realities that a disciple will have to face is the destructive power of Satan, the devil’s desire to destroy whoever he can get. The apostle Peter gives us this warning in 1Peter 5:8: Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Any believer can be the object of Satan’s attacks.
We will turn our attention today to a passage that speaks about this very thing. Luke 22:31-34.
