Satan wants to corrupt us. Therefore, we have to determine to keep ourselves pure. Consider what Paul told the Corinthians:

For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ (2 Corinthians 11.2–3).

Keep Christ before your eyes at all times. Resist the temptation to corrupt the belief system that we get from Him. Keep things simple by keeping His word pure in your mind and do not add anything to His teachings and do not take away any of His teachings!

Questions:

  • Do you think that you can do some things better than the Lord?
  • Do you think that the Lord did everything right?
