The Difference Between Jesus And The Devil

John 10:10 NIV 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

There is a stark contrast between the Lord Jesus Christ and the devil.

Jesus is for you. He loves you and desires the best for you. He loves you even more than He loves Himself. He proved it by dying in your place. His desire is for you to have life in its fullness -- life as God planned it to be -- both now and for all eternity.

The devil is the opposite of Jesus. The devil is against you and is always trying to steal from you, kill you, and destroy everything that is good. The devil is selfish and does not care about you or anyone else but himself.

Can you trust the devil? Yes . . . to be the devil. You can depend on him lying and trying to always deceive you. The purpose of this deception is always to draw you away from God and His Word because that is your only source of help and deliverance from the devil's strategies -- which are stealing, killing, and destroying.

Can you trust Jesus? The answer should be obvious. Anyone who cares for you enough to die in your place, suffering for you, so you won't have to suffer, is trustworthy. Jesus promised to never forsake you. He will never quit loving you and trying to help you.

The trouble is, too many people hinder Jesus from helping them. They believe and follow what the devil says, and turn away from Jesus and the Word of God.

You need to invite and welcome Jesus Christ into your life -- in every area. He wants to help you, but will not force His help on you. If you don't -- the devil may get into those areas of your life and wreak havoc.

SAY THIS: God is a good God and the devil is a bad devil.
