OUR EXIT STRATEGY
Written by Bradley Smith - November 2015


There is a show that has grown quite a following in recent years called The Walking Dead. If you are not familiar with the show, a basic summary is that a zombie infestation takes over the world and there are very few survivors. Sometimes the characters will find themselves surrounded by hoards of zombies with no way to escape (at least easily). They have to come up with some trick or a secret passage to survive.

We as Christians find ourselves surrounded by the evils of this world every single day. You can't turn on the TV or drive through town without seeing a commercial or a billboard for something that we should definitely steer clear of. While these things, unlike the zombies in the show, will not hurt us physically, they can deter us spiritually. They will not eat us physically, but can consume us spiritually. 1st Peter 5:8, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour." Additionally, we do have a way out as well. No, there isn't some trick or secret passage, but through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We must follow his will faithfully and we will be saved from the evils of this world. John 14:6, "Jesus saith unto him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.'"
