1 Peter 5:8 Be sober; watch. Your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking someone to devour.
9 Him withstand, being firm in your faith, knowing that the same sufferings are being accomplished among your brotherhood in the world.
The New Testament encourages us to be watchful and warns us concerning our enemy, the devil. Do you know that we have enemy? I was struck by these words “Your adversary”. Do you know that you have an adversary? Without being watchful he will devour us. But him withstand being firm in your faith! Faith comes out of hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ (Rom. 10:17).
