Lesson

Our mission is to advance the kingdom of God, so we are in conflict with Satan trying to advance his kingdom. We will face resistance because Jesus faced resistance. Temptations involving pride will often seem subtle. Restlessnes can result in ungratefulness and anger. Satan will try to discourage us so we lose heart. God has given us authority. We need to exercise it and stand against sin.
