There was an unexpected knock at the door, Mrs. Smith first opened the peephole and ask, “Who’s there?”
“Parcel post, with a package for the Smith’s.” “Where’s the package?” she asked suspiciously. The deliveryman held it up. “Let me see some ID,” she said, still not convinced. “Lady,” he replied wearily, “If I wanted to break into your house, I’d probably just use these.” And he pulled out the keys she had left in the door.
Satan’s at the door, he is ringing the doorbell. A lot of folks without any consideration of consequences opens the door to their lives to Satan. He stands at the door of every human being who lives or ever lived. From the least to the greatest, he has stood at the entrance of our lives smiling, and cajoling so he may find our weakness and allow him entrance.
Satan presents himself as the most wonderful salesperson there ever was. He’s the perfect being with the perfect solutions to our problems. Satan is called the angel of light in 2 Corinthians 11:14, why is that? Why can a being we portray as hideous and ugly be described in a completely different way in scripture? Once he or one of his ministers are through the door, they bring death and destruction into our lives.
We, on the other hand are less and less mindful about who’s at the door. Our eyes rarely gaze through the peephole of spiritual discernments. Those who do, rarely see the real being standing just outside their lives, they’re eyes only see wonder and beauty, and the allure of the package. They often time are mesmerized with his promises, becoming overwhelmed by his presence.
They’re a few who see and ask the right questions; the door is locked with keys in hand and until they truly know, the door won’t open. They know the illusion portrayed just outside is there for no other reason but harm. They see him though the peephole of their hearts for what he truly is, the destroyer of worlds. Don’t accept the gifts of evil, don’t leave the keys to your life in the hands of Satan, and don’t open the door of your heart to anyone but Christ!
