How to Keep Satan From Dragging You Down
June 12, 2013
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
For a good part of my life, I lived in West Palm Beach, Florida. I remember those days well, especially the many Saturdays we’d spend down at the beach with our kids. Now there’s one thing they tell you if you have kids at the beach: watch out for the undertow!
The undertow in the ocean is a current of water that can pull you under even if the surface of the water looks fine. It’s caused by water returning out to sea after a wave or tide has come in. But it’s not the force of an undertow that makes it dangerous; it’s that you can’t see it.
As Christians, we face spiritual undertows each and every day. And it’s not their strength that makes them so formidable; Satan is no match for Christ in you. What makes them dangerous is the fact that very often people are oblivious to the enemy’s work until he drags them under.
The solution to this problem is to get beneath the surface of our lives and start confronting the enemy’s schemes. Honestly assess where you’re struggling, take steps to curb Satan’s influence, and proclaim Christ in every area of your life!
STAY AFLOAT SPIRITUALLY BY LOOKING BELOW THE SURFACE OF YOUR LIFE AND DOING BATTLE AGAINST SATAN WHEREVER HE ATTACKS!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
