Screwtape Letters #5

“Prosperity knits a man to the world. He feels that he is finding his place in it, while really it is finding its place in him.” CS Lewis’ Screwtape Letters – (posts from a senior demon to a junior demon).

An emerging lockdown realisation is that we have all we need. Truth is that many of us live in excess and find our self-worth in having lots of “stuff”. Jesus often shared something to the effect of “Follow me and leave all your stuff behind – and you’ll find your worth, your identity in me”. His followers started picking up what he put down – and the world was never the same again

Screwtape Letters #4

“I do not expect old heads on young shoulders.” CS Lewis’ Screwtape Letters – (posts from a senior demon to a junior demon).

MILLENNIAL! A term that has come to mean a generation of self-absorbed, weak, insta-crazed brats who will split when the going gets tough because they have no substance.

Here’s the challenge – as a follower of Jesus, “don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanour, by love, by faith, by integrity. Stay at your post reading Scripture, giving counsel, teachingkeep that dusted off and in use.” 1 Timothy 4:12

Screwtape Letters #3

“To decide what the best use of it is, you must ask what use the Enemy (God) wants to make of it, and then do the opposite.” CS Lewis’ Screwtape Letters – (posts from a senior demon to junior a demon).

Be assured that Love silences fear. Joy extinguishes hopelessness and despair. Peace destroys worry, anxiety and denial. Patience conquers bitterness and resentment. Kindness overpowers envy and greed. Goodness puts an end to insincerity and self-righteousness. Faithfulness eliminates mere pretence. Gentleness annihilates superiority and self-absorption. Self-Control vanquishes uncontrolled selfish impulsivity.

Remember, “No weapon turned against you will succeed.” Isaiah 54:17.

Screwtape Letters #2

“The humans live in time but our Enemy (God) destines them for eternity.” CS Lewis’ Screwtape Letters – (posts from a senior demon to a junior demon).

According to Ecclesiastes 3:11, God has placed eternity in our hearts – He placed eternity in our very core meaning we are not made for the “now” only. We are designed for the “forever”. Let that fact sink in.

Don’t be suckered by the devil into living like this broken-beat up-fake-news-world is it. The creator of the entire universe has put a part of Himself inside of you – and that cannot break or fade or die.
