"Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased" (Mark 1:11)
It is the Spirit of Christ in us that will draw satan's fire. The people of the world will not much care what we believe and they will stare vacantly at our religious forms, but there is one thing they will never forgive us - the presence of God's Spirit in our hearts.
They may not know the cause of that strange feeling of antagonism which rises within them, but it will be nonetheless real and dangerous. satan will never cease to make war on the Man-child, and the soul in which dwells the Spirit of Christ will continue to be the target for his attacks.
Immediately after a person has received the witness of the Spirit, the adversary charges down upon the soul. It is well for all such assaulted individuals to remember that just as soon as the Son of God received the baptism of the Holy Spirit on the banks of the Jordan, that He was immediately afterwards driven into the wilderness and there tempted forty days by the devil. He conquered by faith and in the use of the Word of God. We can do the same.
