Do not be a captive of deception. Seek for the truth that leads to salvation. Decide to spend more time reading and understanding the Scriptures - Daily Bible Reflections September 10,2013


ENEMY IN A MASK

 
See to it that no one captivate you with an empty, seductive philosophy according to human tradition, according to the elemental powers of the world and not according to Christ. – Colossians 2:8
 
She was a sweet talker. I barely knew her but I was so drawn to her. She knew exactly what to say and what I needed to hear to convince me to invest in her business. It turned out she was a hoax. Soon she was gone and so was my money. I got fooled big time.
       The enemy is cunning and persistent. He will find ways to get us at our weakness in an attempt to shake our faith, without even making us aware of it. He uses people who are masked with deception. They can be anywhere — in our own circle of family and friends, in our community, or even in our own church or parish. So we must always be on guard.
       Our relationship with God is not supposed to be based solely on what we feel or what we want to hear. Rather, our faith should be rooted in the true knowledge of Christ. Every day, we must strive to know God even better so that the enemy will have no chance to derail our hope and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Jane Gonzales-Rauch (mgr516@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: Do not be a captive of deception. Seek for the truth that leads to salvation. Decide to spend more time reading and understanding the Scriptures.
 
Holy Spirit, grant me the gift of wisdom so I can see beyond deception. Amen.
 
St. Thomas of Villanova, pray for us.
