“How to Defeat Our Defeated Foe”

1 Peter 5:8-11

 

  1. Adversary in the battle

Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).

 

  1. Our enemy is devious
  2. Our enemy is destructive
  1. Advice for the battle

Be sober-minded; be watchful. . . . Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world (1 Peter 5:8-9).

 

  1. Be guarded
  2. Be grounded
  1. Ally in the battle

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. 11 To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen (1 Peter 5:10-11).

 

  1. He gives grace
  2. He gives glory
