Enemy Tactics

We are not ignorant of [Satan’s] devices. —
2 Corinthians 2:11

Today’s Scripture: Acts 6:1-15

Satan uses many methods to hinder the work of the Lord. Chapters 6 through 8 of Acts contain three
illustrations of how he does his evil work through people and circumstances.

1. Satan creates dissension within the church. “In those days . . . there arose a complaint against the Hebrews
by the Hellenists” (Acts 6:1). When a church becomes known for its bickering and backbiting, its witness in
the community will be damaged.

2. The enemy tries to divert ministers and teachers from their main purpose of preaching the gospel. The
apostles were feeling pressured to “leave the Word of God and serve tables” (6:2). Satan employs a similar
tactic today by getting a pastor so involved in church programs that he has little time for prayer and the
study of the Word.

3. In every age Satan seeks to destroy God’s people. In Acts 7 and 8 we read that Stephen was martyred, and
that Saul “made havoc of the church” (8:3).

We need to be aware of Satan’s tactics and be on guard against his attacks. We don’t want to be a cause of
dissension and diversion in the church. Instead, let’s prayerfully focus on Christ’s purpose for our lives.
