One of the biggest businesses in America is home security. Every year in the USA we spend over $20 billion (yes, a B!) on home systems and monitoring services. One research agency reported that a home burglary happens every 18 seconds in the USA. At least 3 break-ins every minute! 180 every hour! 4,300 every 24 hours! Security is important!
While we’re concerned and proactive when it comes to physical security, we’re often passive about spiritual security. We don’t understand or ignore the reality of potential spiritual burglary.
Jesus made it clear. There’s a spiritual thief casing your life, your home, your activities. Look at Jesus’ words in John 10:10 (NIV) “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Don’t overlook an important fact here. Jesus said, “The thief COMES …” It’s not simply a possibility, it’s a reality. There is an invisible, yet very real, thief targeting you. He is the devil. He’s determined to steal, kill and destroy you and your family. It’s a fact!
The good news is, we can install a spiritual security system. It warns us of the thief’s activity and deters the thief’s attack. Learning and living by Jesus’ words is the best way to secure your life from the enemy’s schemes.
Have you installed a spiritual security system in your life and home?
