verses 13-14: “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”

My oldest son’s high school that he attends has as their mascot, the Red Devils. Of course, when you see drawings of the mascot, it’s of the pitchfork-wielding, horn-headed, red devil. There are still folks today that think that that is what Satan appears as….a red devil. Now, if you saw a monster that looked like a monster heading your way, you’d be sure to steer clear of it. But what about the monster that doesn’t look like a monster? Unless you are on your guard, you won’t recognize it as a monster until it’s too late.

Satan is the prince of liars…he’ll appear to be a friend, until it’s too late. When you go fishing, do you pull out the meanest looking hook in the world to catch the fish, throw it in the water and expect the fish to bite it? No….you put bait on it, something that looks good to the fish, something attractive and tasty-looking. That bait is what covers the danger of the hook. Be aware that Satan has his hooks out every day, hoping to catch you unawares.

Better to be a fisher of men, as Christ wants us to be, catching and rescuing those in the net who are floundering through this life (no pun intended). Take your direction from the Master Fisherman today.

Have a blessed day!
