Goals in Life (3)

Christians should want to please God and be happy with the way they think, speak/sign and act. But pleasing God is not always easy. Every day Christians fight a battle with the devil. In 1 Peter 5:8b, we learn that the “devil is your enemy, and he goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to attack and eat.” The devil wants to keep Christians from following and obeying God.
But Christians are not alone! In Ephesians, chapter 6, Paul tells us how we can stand strong against the devil. We can wear God’s armor and be prepared to fight the devil. If we have God’s protection, we can win the battle against evil.
Verse 35 of our Bible Reading says, “Help me follow your commands because that makes me happy.” If we do what God wants us to do, He will be pleased with us. That kind of life will bring us happiness.
I hope that you truly love being a Christian. May God bless you and help you today.
