Jesus challenges us to be awake and able-bodied. Jesus knows that unless Satan ties us up first, our possessions can’t be stolen.
God’s goal for us is to have eternal life now. It is a gift to us through His son Jesus. It is our possession. We own it in Him.
Satan wants to steal it from us. The evil one’s goal is to tie us up.
God is in a good mood and gives us all the tools we need to withstand the attack. Now that is some good news.
“Do you think it’s possible in broad daylight to enter the house of an awake, able-bodied man, and walk off with his possessions unless you tie him up first?” ~Jesus (Mark 3:26 The Message)
