2 Corinthians 11:1-21

“And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”

Wouldn’t it be great if the evil one always came at us in a red suit with pitchfork in hand! We would appreciate the warning and run.

But the evil one disguises himself. Darkness wraps himself in light.

In Paul’s day he came in apparently gifted and charismatic men who were false teachers. Thank God we are too sophisticated to be duped in that way. Hear dripping sarcasm just in case you missed it.

In our day, He comes to us in those close enough to influence us. Not always in bad people but often in ordinary people even friends and family. Sometimes he sits across a candlelit table an offers us the world. More sinister he comes to us in advertisements that invite us to fear or wrongly desire and order our lives accordingly.

The evil one often looks good. But he is always evil. Consequently, we must be vigilant in our discernment.
