Forgive Others To Outwit Satan

10 To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;  11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.  (II Corinthians 2:10-11) 

Satan is a deceiver and a liar.  He has many schemes and tricks to keep us off track and off course.  He is a trickster.  Satan will have you attending Church every Sunday, reading your Bible, going to Sunday School with an unforgiving spirit.  Holding a grudge.  Hating on someone.  Envy and strife in your heart.  This is a trick of Satan.  We must forgive one another and show genuine love for our fellow man.  Christ forgives us.  So ought we to forgive one another.  We cannot serve God wholly with hatred in our hearts.  We must be wise as serpents.  If we want to outwit Satan, create a forgiving heart and a forgiving spirit.  When we refuse to forgive, we give in to Satan devices.  When we forgive, we outwit Satan.
