What Satanic Powers Ultimately Want (R)

“Often we’re deceived into thinking self-exaltation isn’t a weak point for us because we don’t see ourselves clamoring for global power or celebrity. But kingdom and glory are always relative terms. The satanic powers don’t care what size kingdom you want or what quantity of glory is enough for you to bow the knee. They just want to see you worship something other than God to get what you want. . . The issue isn’t the size of the kingdom; it’s what you will do to get it.”

Russell Moore from Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ
