What Satan needs you to do!

During this time of year, we tend to focus on Jesus and on what He wants and means to us. Spending great deals of time considering how and what we should be doing as Christians. Being in this typical mindset, especially with Christmas fast approaching; I read an article recently that made me consider the opposite perspective. This article made me consider the question, “What would Satan want me to do?” Here is what I came up with and hopefully it gets us to thinking seriously about Jesus, our enemy, and what we’re doing with our faith.
