    As we align our lives with the Bible and make a dedication to Jehovah God, we are able to receive his spirit. This is a great source of protection to Christians. This allows us to see the world from spiritual perspective, gaining the mind of Christ. Thus we can make decisions that will draw us closer to God, and resist Satan's evil spirit of the world.
