One Visitor I Don’t Want

One Visitor I Don’t Want

Ephesians 4:27 “Neither give place to the devil.”

I love having guests over. When we lived in Peru we were blessed to have people in our house almost on a daily basis. There is one guest I never want in my house though. Paul tells us here not to give place to the devil. Don’t open the door and let him in. “Oh!” you say, “I would never do that!” But we do sometimes. In the verse before that he tells us “…let not the sun go down upon your wrath:” Any time we harbor unforgiving feelings towards others we are opening up the door for Satan. Anytime we have unresolved conflict in our lives we are preparing the bed for him in our guest room. Deal with these issues immediately. Resolve them quickly, or you are providing a place for the devil to work in your life.

Three Conversations:

Last Thursday the Lord opened up an opportunity for me to witness to three different men. Carlos #1: Carlos is a plumber who came by the house to modify some of the pipes so we could install a dishwasher. When he had finished his work, he and I talked for close to an hour. I gave him a tract and explained the purpose of our move to Argentina.
