Yes the devil is real. Yes there is evil. He may be around and watching just to see when to attack. He is clever. But he has already been totally defeated! Forever. Worst than the evil around us may be the evil inside ourselves! Our defects of character! It is easy to say that “the devil is trying to catch me”… But hard to assume responsability for our wrongs. Once we look inside ourselves, and recognize how far we can be from Jesus (the fountain of all goodness and love), we begin to fight the devil. Again, evil has been completely defeated at the cross! And by this power we can win this fight, not by our merits, but by Jesus’.
