    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Security In Christ

Richard Baxter

There are many Christians who spend a good deal of their spiritual discussions on the topic of demons and the devil. If they are not careful, they will begin to see a demon behind every bush. Richard Baxter provides Christians with advice that is very sound when dealing with the fear of Satan:

If it be the spiritual temptations and molestations only of Satan which you fear, remember that you have more cause to fear yourselves, for he can but tempt you; and if you do not more against yourselves, than all the devils in hell can do, you will never perish. And if you are willing to accept and yield to Christ, you need not inordinately fear either Satan or yourselves. For it is in the name and strength of Christ, and under his conduct and protection, that you are to begin and finish your warfare. And the Spirit that is in us, is greater and stronger than the spirit that is in the world, and that molesteth us, 1 John 4:4. And the “Father that giveth us to Christ is greater than all, and none can pluck us out of his hands,” John 10:29. “And the God of peace will tread down Satan under our feet,” Rom. 16:20. If it were in his power he would molest us daily, and we had never escaped so far as we have done: our daily experience telleth us that we have a Protector.
