I saw Gordon College’s production of The Screwtape Letters this past evening. One thing that happened from watching it was the realization that it is so real. satan has his demons crawling around the earth tempting us, trying to get us to fall, and doing their best to drag us down to the same fiery pit they have all been sentenced to. But oh, dear brothers and sisters, we are not satan’s and we are not slaves to our sins. When sin controls us, we act as satan’s puppets doing whatever he tells us to do. But rejoice, for in Christ we are freed from sin and from the chains, or strings, that the enemy tries to have us on. Don’t give the enemy the satisfaction. Stay true to God and His Word. He brings freedom and breaks the chains! The enemy has NO power so put him on notice!
By the way, if you’ve never read the book or seen the play, I highly encourage you to.
