Jesus spoke often about Satan and demons. He spent no small amount of His time driving out demons. In today’s Gospel reading from Luke 11, Jesus drives out a demon and is accused of driving out demons by the power of Beelzebul.
After debunking that theory, Jesus goes on to talk about how after an unclean spirit goes out of someone, “it goes and brings back seven other spirits more wicked that itself who move in and dwell there, and the last condition of that man is worse than the first.”
Satan is quite persistent. We can certainly have victory over Satan and evil. When we do, that is no time to rest on our laurels. Satan doesn’t like defeat. And when we do win victories over him, he simply redoubles his efforts. If there’s one thing Satan is not, it’s a quitter. These are the times we must be wary and diligent. Because if we give in, we’re likely to end up worse than before. Never let down your guard!
Father, help us to continually fight against Satan. We always call upon you and the heavenly host to help us in our struggle with evil. Amen.
