A thief is someone who steals. He is especially stealthy; he is quiet, secretive, and moves in a way to avoid being noticed. Thief's are crafty and expert at disguising themselves as comrades. They are sly, deceptive, dishonest, and driven by underhanded attempts to gain power over your life. Thief's are liars.
Thief's Have An Agenda
'The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:I (Jesus) am come that they (whosoever will) might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.(John 10:10). The thief comes to steal your joy, peace, energy,vision; all that is freely yours through Christ Jesus. The thief comes to kill your self-esteem, confidence, and spirit. The thief comes to destroy your relationship with family, friends, more importantly your relationship with and trust in God. The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy your soul.
We Are Stronger Than The Thief
"we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of His body, the church. (Ephesians 4:14-15).
"Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech. Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil. (Proverbs 4:23-27).
Stay Yoked to Jesus!
He is the Way, Truth, and the Life .....(John 14:6).
