It is that time of year when the clarion call for flu vaccines is heard. Every drugstore or medical clinic seems to have a sign, “Flu Shots Available!” For most of us, it is a routine task and although it may give us some peace of mind, we may wonder, how efficacious is this vaccine? After all, the vaccine only protects against the anticipated common strains of the influenza flu virus. And while it may confer temporary immunity to this strain, there are many other viruses, that, while not the influenza virus, may cause us to be ill with flu-like symptoms that are virtually indistinguishable from the influenza flu.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
We do not have a vaccine for sin but we do have God’s Word and promise to us. And unlike the flu vaccine, God’s Word can protect against all forms of sin and evil, not just the most common ones. Satan hates the Word of God and when we quote it, meditate upon it, and live it, Satan must flee. It is His armor that God gives to us. And it is available any moment we call upon His name.
A vaccine for sin? Look to God’s Word for the answer and be inoculated with it every moment of every day.
Blessings with Aloha!
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
