Most importantly, he lived a life in which he acknowledged all that he had become was because of the grace of God.
The Devil will seek to gain entrance into your life in order to cause you to fail in your service to God. In this sermon, Evangelist William St John teaches how the Devil can use bitterness to cause us to fail, and he encourages us to give no place to the Devil.
