CADMUS

Greek Mythology tells of Cadmus who, while searching for his sister, came upon a dragon that blocked his travel.  Cadmus fought and killed the fierce dragon.  Then he pulled out all the teeth of the savage beast and buried them in a field.  The next time he traveled that way he was surprised to discover that every tooth had become an armed giant.  It seemed impossible that he could pass through their midst.  How could he overcome them?

He thought of a scheme.  While hiding behind a tree, he threw a stone.  One of the giants, thinking another giant had struck him, hit him 'in return.  The other giants began to take sides and soon a huge melee ensued.  Their fighting escalated and soon involved their weapons.  Finally, all the giants were drawn into the fight.  Before long all were dead or seriously wounded.  Then, Cadmus was able to pass.

This church is full of potential spiritual giants.  But if Satan can sow seeds of discord and disunity,  then we will end up fighting one another.  When brethren fight, it gives Satan great pleasure.  However, when Christians pray, when they become one in mind and spirit, Satan trembles.  How are we doing? How are you doing?

For His Cause,
