Glorifying God by Changing Lives for Christ

Pastor David Campbell

Recently I delivered a message on Satan’s efforts to hinder the progress of the Gospel.  Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 2:18 (NASB95), “For we wanted to come to you—I, Paul, more than once—and yet Satan hindered us.”  Satan is still hindering the efforts of Christians to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Perhaps you have witnessed this in your own attempts to share the Gospel with others.  An opportunity vanished because of some event or circumstance that prevented you from making that contact.  Perhaps someone discouraged the person from listening to you, or perhaps they just invited them to go do something else instead of meeting with you.  Satan does what he can to put roadblocks in the pathway of people coming to Christ.  This is reality.  Let us be aware of this.  May this knowledge spur us on to expect roadblocks to the spread of the Gospel.  Let us pray for one another that we do not get discouraged in our efforts to win others for Christ.  Let us never give up.  Let us do what we can where we can for the Lord.  Let us pray that God will remove the roadblocks.  Let us especially remember in prayer our missionaries as many of them face satanic roadblocks every day as they try to win others to Jesus.  People are going toward one of two places: heaven or hell.  Satan is trying all that he can to keep people out of heaven.  Oh that the Lord would give us a heart to do all that we can to keep people out of hell.
