I am continuing in the Overcoming Temptation series on the Sow the Word Teaching Ministry Radio Broadcast and I want to talk about close things in this blog post. In order for us to understand how the enemy works, we have to know that he will use things that are close to us to tempt us. His tempting cannot be a tempting of our recreated human spirit as we learn from 2 Corinthians 6 that darkness cannot have part with light, so the enemy will have to appeal to the soulish part of us and our physical bodies. The soul includes the mind, will, emotions and intellect of man. The devil will use things close to our souls and bodies to tempt us and try to get us to fall. We are going to be talking about standing vs falling on the radio in the last few lessons of this series.
Close things are things that can be found in your house, your work environment, your community or your family. The devil may use your spouse as he did in Job where Job’s wife advised him to curse God and die. It is important that we are aware of close things. Close things mean much to us and we are more likely to pay more attention when advice or thoughts come from those we esteem and love. The bottom line here is that we have to take every thought and bring it to the subjection of Christ. So, your spouse is wrong if he or she is advising you contrary to the Word of God. Your boss is too as is your mother or father or siblings. The thing that you have to do is go to God for His wisdom and how to deal with those close to you. He will give you the answers and show you how to walk in love with those who are close to you. Learn more about close things on the Radio Broadcast on Wednesday at noon.
