Have You Left
Your Backdoor
Open?

“A Robber cannot enter
Into a House unless he
First overwhelm the owner,
and then he can rob the house.”

Mark 3:27
(Paraphrased for clarity)

back-door I opened my backdoor one morning and was startled that I had left it unlocked all night, and that got me thinking about what Jesus said about the thief entering into someone’s house. While Jesus’ parable seems to be about a physical house, He was really referring to the danger of leaving an opening in our spirit to destructive forces that can enter into our life through a hidden way that we are unaware of or have carelessly ignored.

All of us have flaws– that is just a part of being human – but some of these can be 'back doors' to the evil spiritual world of robber spirits of the soul that unless checked and secured can be an opening to temptations and weaknesses that can sneak up on us and rob and destroy our spirit. Many great men and women have been brought down because they did not check their 'unlocked spiritual backdoor' and were overcome, tricked and robbed into making tragic mistakes.

The best defense is a strong offense, so diligently practice 1 Corinthians 16:13 that commands us to “Watch, Stand Steady and...BE STRONG.” Always be vigilant and circumspect of all aspects of your life. No one will do it for you! Make sure the house of your spirit is always locked and secure and never “Give any place to the devil” (Ephesians 4:27)
