Wearing Masks

Wearing Masks Sermon Illustration

“As the deceiver, Satan encourages mask-wearing. He is the master of camouflage. He wears his own mask most of the time. Satan is expert at appearing as an ‘angel of light’ or a ‘minister of righteousness’ (see
2 Corinthians 11:13–15), and he encourages this behavior in those he is trying to influence. His purposes for us are served well by Christians who make a loud profession with the mask they wear while saying something quite different with the un-Christian way they handle some areas of their lives” (Neil T. Anderson, The Essential Guide to Spiritual Warfare [Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Publishing Group, 2000], 2016 electronic edition, 98).
