[Christ] who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father (Galatians 1:4).
Scientists in the field of human potential have estimated that we use as little as ten percent of our abilities. Ninety percent of our capacities lie dormant and wasted. It is sad that we use only a small part of our abilities and talents. Most of us have no idea how much talent and potential we possess.
The work of the devil is to kill and steal and destroy—he delights up capping off our potential. But 1 John 3:8b says, The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.

What does it mean to destroy the works of the devil? How does Jesus do His job? Jesus reverses what satan has done. Whatever
Jesus undoes, satan did. Whatever works Jesus does, satan undid it first.

For example, when Jesus took sickness from a person’s body, He undid the works of the devil. Thus the work of the devil was to put the sickness into that body. When Jesus took away our sins, He destroyed the devil’s work of convincing us to sin. If Jesus fed hungry people, then it must mean that satan brings poverty and hunger.
If Jesus opened the eyes of the blind, then satan must close them.

Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil. Whatever He did destroyed satan’s previous works. Thus when Jesus says,
“Everything is possible if you’ll just believe” (see Mark 9:23), He is reversing the lies satan has fed us. Jesus came to destroy satan’s destruction.
Jesus came to destroy satan’s destruction.
