Episode 38 - Opting Out of a Veto Override Session is Not an Option


And now, dear brothers and sisters, I’d like to give one final word of caution: Watch out for those who cause divisions and offenses among you. When they antagonize you by speaking of things that are contrary to the teachings that you’ve received, don’t be caught in their snare! For people like this are not truly serving the Lord, our Messiah, but are being driven by their own desires for a following. Utilizing their smooth words and well-rehearsed blessings, they seek to deceive the hearts of innocent ones. I’m so happy when I think of you, because everyone knows the testimony of your deep commitment of faith. So I want you to become scholars of all that is good and beautiful, and stay pure and innocent when it comes to evil. And the God of peace will swiftly pound Satan to a pulp under your feet! And the wonderful favor of our Lord Jesus will surround you.

This is such a word for our times. Those who are among us and claim to be with us are causing division and leading people down wrong paths. But if we remain steadfastly anchored in Christ, we will know how to remain pure and clean before the Lord. I love that the Lord showed Paul that our commitment to purity, truth, innocence and godly living will be what God uses to crush Satan under OUR feet. That’s what pure living leads to - the defeat of evil.
