Haunted Houses

Make no mistake, there is evil in this world.  Not the ghosts and goblins, vampires or werewolves of Hollywood and Halloween – but real, spiritual villainy seeking to do us harm, lurking in the dark corners of our hearts, clawing at our fears, and draining the life blood of our joy and peace. Jesus Christ is the only Ghostbuster we need to call – running those dangerous spirits out of our lives and sweeping clean our homes of their frightful influences.

They always try to return, however, through every crack and fissure they can find like a chilling draft, but the love of God acts as a force field around us, insulating our hearts from their deadly winds if we keep Him close to our sides. We don’t have to live in a haunted house when we have Christ inside with the Holy Ghost.  So who you gonna call?
