Jude 3-4 (NLT)…But now I find that I must write about something else, urging you to defend the faith that God has entrusted once for all time to his holy people. 4 I say this because some ungodly people have wormed their way into your churches, saying that God's marvelous grace allows us to live immoral lives…

One sad thing about being deceived is that those deceived do not know that they are being deceived. They sincerely believe that they are right.

Deception is one of the devil's key weapons against God's people. He tries to get us deluded to walk in darkness. For the past couple of days, we have been writing on 'true faith in Christ Jesus' because we want to destroy the deception of the devil that is leading honest Christians into a kind of faith that is not the true faith in Christ Jesus. This kind of faith has no fruit and no evidence of righteousness but is simply talk and more talk. This kind of faith has no real power it produces because it leaves its followers captives to diverse sorts of sins.

When Paul wrote 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 which says "Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers… will not inherit the kingdom of God", he knew that there would be those who claimed to have faith in Christ, but who were still practicing these sins. He knew such people believed they were in God's kingdom because they were deceived.

The devil will do anything to keep people deceived from walking in righteousness, because this would give them power over him. He would use false doctrines to deceive many into a version of faith that makes them powerless over him.

Go into today knowing that unrighteousness is what gives Satan power over people. The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all unrighteousness.

Thank the Lord Jesus for His blood that cleanses you. Ask for grace to walk in true righteousness.
