To be a Christian is not easy, it comes with a lot of responsibilities. As a Christian, you should not exhibit lukewarm attitude because it irritates God.
There are so many Christians who have fallen to the devil because they are oblivious of their calling as Christians. Do you not know that the devil is not happy with Christians? His aim is to bring them down and make them deviate from worshipping God.
There may be so many reasons Christians fall easily to the devil, but these two (2) are common:
1. Lack of spiritual consciousness: when you lack spiritual consciousness, you will be oblivious of the plans and devices of the devil. The devil does not joke with his purpose; some Christian are the ones who joke with their purpose and spiritual lives. To be spiritually conscious, you must be prayerful, adhere to holiness and be committed in the things of God. The devil is at watch all the time to see when you are weak so that he can attack you. But to avoid this, you must be spiritually conscious so that you can avert the plans of the devil.
2. Interest in worldly things: the Bible said, "seek the kingdom of God first and every other thing shall be added unto you." The Bible also said that "friendship with the world is enmity with God." When you are more close to the world than to God, the devil will have the opportunity to manipulate your life and render you useless. So many people are useless in life but they do not know. How prosperous you are does not mean that you are useful; when you are not serving a godly purpose in life, you are useless. The Bible also expressed that we are not tempted by God, rather we are tempted by the desires of our heart; that means that when you have so much interest in worldly things, you will be tempted with them and you fall to the temptation. And when you fall to temptation, it results to sin, and when the sin is fully mature, it leads to death.
May the Almighty God give you a good understanding about this message, Amen!
