Bulls Eye On Your Back

Bill Scott

Bill Scott

I grew up a pastors kid, followed by 30 years of working in ministry personally.  I’d say that I’ve seen a lot.  Perhaps I have not seen it all but I’ve seen more than most…good and bad.

Lets begin with this verse and then I want to challenge all of us in Christian radio.  Working at a radio station makes you a leader and that automatically places a bulls eye on your back.

Colossians 3:5-8 The Message (MSG)

“And that means killing off everything connected with that way of death: sexual promiscuity, impurity, lust, doing whatever you feel like whenever you feel like it, and grabbing whatever attracts your fancy. That’s a life shaped by things and feelings instead of by God. It’s because of this kind of thing that God is about to explode in anger. It wasn’t long ago that you were doing all that stuff and not knowing any better. But you know better now, so make sure it’s all gone for good: bad temper, irritability, meanness, profanity, dirty talk.”

So often when you see a comrade fall like I wrote about not long ago, people often ask, “How did they end up doing that?”  Individuals don’t go from A-Z over night.  It’s a series of compromises they make.

The one thing I have learned over the years is that Satan is patient.  He will wait with great patience for you to become weak and then attack with all his might.  So often it’s easy to let your guard down, to coast and just cruise through life but those are the times when more than likely your attack will come.  You are changing peoples lives, seeing listeners come to Christ, folks are set free from addictions, marriages saved etc…  Don’t for a moment think that doesn’t make Satan angry at what your doing.  You are a direct threat to him.

There are a few things all of us need to be doing so we can remain strong and be ready for what Satan throws our way.  Reading God’s Word daily is at the top of the list.  Having a couple of accountability partners is huge. Being involved with other believers in church or a small group of some kind.  Those are just a couple of things we need to be doing in order to be prepared for when the attacks come.  I often meet with David Smallbone, someone who’s a friend to a lot of radio folks.  If you’ve ever had coffee with David, than you know he always ends your time together with a short devotional.  He does that because he understands the power of God’s Word.

We all have things we are dealing with.  My encouragement to you is to seek out a close friend who you can share the struggle or struggles with.  A secret sin is a deadly sin.  Be proactive.  Find the help you need.  Have someone walking with you.  This verse comes to mind when I think about walking life with an accountability partner and friend.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 English Standard Version

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!”

Know that God is using you in a great way at your radio station.  Lets make sure we are all strong, for ourselves, families and ministry.

  • This is a really great word, Bill. We must guard our minds, hearts and spirits. I know I fail more than I like to admit. Thanks for speaking up!

    • Thanks for the comment. Rock the new job!

  • Great reminder and insight to the enemy being patient….and Victory in the Word….Jesus! James 4:6-7(NIV)

    6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:

    “God opposes the proud
    but shows favor to the humble.”[a]
    7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
