Text: Acts 8:9-13.

Simon, the magician practiced witchcraft with magic as we saw in the introduction of this topic, but when Philip proclaimed the Good News about Jesus Christ, the people saw the folly of witchcraft, they believed and were baptized. So did Simon himself. With the power of God in Jesus Christ people can overcome the demonic powers including witchcraft.

Does your life and actions show that you have believed in Jesus Christ, and do you have a testimony to that effect? Do you realize that people can be tricked and think that something is true when it is a sham?

Lord God, teach me to discern what is true and what is false that I may be an instrument of deliverance for myself, family and nation. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
