What gets to that ultimate dweeb? I mean what really gets to that dweeb who bullies, harasses, rips off and hassles you? You know, who troubles your friends and family too?

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. ‘I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.’” ~ Jesus via John 10:10-12
What really bugs the one that hates you most, I mean Mr. Lu-Cifer who wants to fast or slow (preferably real fast).. permanently take you out or have you do that to yourself? 
It’s when you have your priorities right, believer. Sure, it's when you totally live for, yes when you all out worship the living God alone ..who SO loves you. I mean with no spiritual compromise of any sort. 
But there is nothing that hacks the enemy off more, there is nothing that the evil one (Satan) hates more than your time alone with, than your intimacy with and daily closeness to the Lord – I mean our Bible Jesus and honest relationship with Him. He indeed is your first love no matter what others might say. Yes, that’s the One who loves you most and has has always been faithful. When others pack sand, He’ll never ditch you for even one sec.
What bugs the one who tried his best to dethrone Him and then got chucked out of heaven? 

It’s when we praise.. it’s when we prayerfully serve the Lord, it’s when we obey Him in giving, in walkin’ with love, it’s when we worship (that’s SO rad-important), it’s when we’re explaining and tellin’ others the truth about Christ. Yeah, guess what..  it makes an impact on the hearers, and then those people with His love go make an impact other people. 

Hey Buckeroo, you’re going to soon gather with loved ones right? Choose to tactfully make a biblical impact this Christmas!

Connect vertically and then horizontally. Today is good. This season is good for that. 
Take time for and connect with individuals, not just with groups. Love individuals well, not just groups well.. not love TV cameras. 
When you connect with individuals, guess what.. you can glorify the Lord and subsequently gain the attention of crowds. Boys, girls, adult singles, moms and dads.. Jesus wisely won the hearts of people of different backgrounds with the truth.. one by one. 
Jesus loved to pray cuz He loved His Father, and He also took time for individuals. Still does. Go with the #Gospel -- go tell.
"And when she finds it, she calls together her friends and neighbors to say, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:9-10
