Question: Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?
Satan is known as the accuser for a reason. How will you or I stand up against his accusations? With the answer to this question that the Angel of the Lord asks!
Scriptures: John 8:2-11; 1 John 2:1-2

Points to Ponder: Satan is an accuser, but Jesus is our advocate. Satan is a prosecutor, but Jesus is our defense attorney. Satan condemns, but Jesus defends.
Treasure to Share: “Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (Romans 8:33-34).
Action to Take: What are you going to wear to school/work this week? More important than the outfit you pick out is to consider how you’ve been outfitted with Christ’s holiness by faith. When you feel insecure, remember the fact of your baptism. You’ve been washed clean of sin and fully clothed with Christ’s obedience. You are truly “Holy to the LORD!” because your great high priest Jesus paid for sins once for all. (cf. Hebrews 9:26)
Not yet baptized? Shoot Pastor Ben a text message this week to ask about how you too can receive this gift of baptism as a permanent answer to insecurity!
