Someone wants you to be like him. He constantly works on your mind & your emotions. His intent is to kill, steal, & destroy. However, Someone Else created you to be like Him. He offers gentle encouragement & endless love.
The enemy of your soul uses coercion: the practice of persuading someone to do something by using force or threats.
- He wants to trick you into becoming a slave to sin
- He is determined to get you to default, doubt, & derail.
The Good Shepherd
The Lover of your soul is intent on helping you enjoy an abundant life in Him. He gives you the power of choice.
- He encourages you so you can become a slave to righteousness & love.
- He wants to help you reset, refocus, & be restored.
