Goals in Life (3)

All Christians should want to please God. They should want God to be happy with the way they think, speak/sign and act. But pleasing God is not always easy. Every day Christians must fight a battle. This battle is 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 some person to 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, “Lord, lead me along the path of your commands. I truly love that way of living.” 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 as you serve Him today.
