Scripture reading for August 12th: 2nd Corinthians 11, Psalm 10, Proverbs 6
Key Scriptures: 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15 “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.”
Paul exposed the false teachers that had come into the midst of the Corinthian church. These men were in disguise, masquerading as true ‘apostles of Christ’ and claiming to be servants of righteousness. They were leading the church astray with their lies and false doctrines and taking money from the church that should have been used to further the work of Christ in saving souls. Satan is a master of disguise, he comes only to steal, kill, and destroy–Christians beware!
Faith Confession: From God’s Word, I know that Satan is a master of disguise and God is Truth. Lord, open my eyes each day to Truth and guard me from deception, even from those claiming to be ‘apostles of Christ.’
Proverbs 6:16-19 “There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to Him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.”
