A thief is planning to break into your house! Do I have your attention?
Jesus clearly described our spiritual enemy, the devil, as a thief. Look at what He said 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.”
The problem with a thief is, they are sneaky. They never announce their plans or arrival time beforehand. They wait for the opportune moment and strike. Jesus warned us about this in Matthew 24:43 (NIV) “But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into.”
It’s one thing for a thief to break into your house. It’s quite another to open the door of your house and welcome the thief in!
In the spiritual realm of life, we’re often bringing the devil through the door with us. Through bad attitudes, anger, resentment, bickering, strife, hatred, destructive words, we let our spiritual enemy into our homes, and the result is stolen peace, joy, unity and harmony.
Whatever you do, don’t bring the devil through the door of your house! He’s a thief, and when he comes in you always lose!
