The Doorpost: Don’t be deceived

Mike Miller  ·  Jan 01, 2015

But exhort one another every day, as

Don’t be deceived.

We can be wrong without knowing it. That’s what it means to be deceived. According to this passage, we are all at risk.

How do we know if we are deceived? The answer is not from within ourselves. It’s not just more prayer or more Bible study or being extra careful. Those things are necessary, but exhortation from fellow believers is also essential. We need others, and they need us.

When do we need exhortation from others? Right now. Today, and every day. We are in a battle with the forces of spiritual darkness every day. We are at risk every day, and we need exhortation from one another every day.

Apart from one another, we will be deceived.

Don’t be deceived.
