It's time that we who profess
the Christian faith stop going around
acting defeated, as though Satan
has triumphed, once again,
over a follower of the King.
The scriptures tell us that Christ is
in us and we are in him. And he is Lord
of all. Satan is a defeated foe to each
of us who has accepted the Christ as
our Lord and Savior.
And we have been given the power to say
"Scram-o! Beat it kid" to that old serpent.
And if we say this in the name of the Lord
Jesus Christ, Satan has no other choice
but to depart and slither away.
In the name of Christ, take charge!
