Satan’s costly offers
The devil took Jesus to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me (Mathew 4:8-9). Suppose Jesus had accepted this offer, what would have happened? The consequences would have been disastrous for the whole world, and God’s Kingdom. This is why I want to talk about Satan’s costly offers.
Satan daily offers you exciting offers.
In your walk with God, the Devil is daily presenting you with juicy offers related to prosperity, sex, status, fame, and power.
How to reject Satan‘s offers.
1. Always focus your mind on heavenly things.
“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above,
where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:1-2
2. Do not put much trust in earthly possessions.
“Those who trust in their riches will fall,
but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.” Proverbs 11:28
3. Always realize that your soul is more important than earthly possessions.
“What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels,
and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.” Mathew 16:26-27
