I love today's daily verse on Snippets!
My Bible study group is studying R.C. Sproul's book called "Now, That's a Good Question!" I am co-leading the group and it has really challenged me to the max! R.C. is a great teacher and theologian, but in this particular book, he doesn't give the answers in the back to the answers he gives in the front! So I search for the scriptures that would go along with his answers. I think it is probably really good for me that I'm stretched to search! I'm basically lazy and love it when the "correct" answer is in the back of any book.
I'll be leading the next chapter which is "Understanding Satan"....whoa! This is the verse he starts out with:
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world." 1 Peter 5:8-9
What a reminder to always be on guard. To put on the full armor of God to withstand Satan...because he is always looking, seeking and walking about.
Fortunately, the last chapter was on the "Growing Spiritual Life". The last portion of that chapter was "How can I best prolong a useful Christian life as I grow older?"
One of the last statements he makes in that part is "In God's wonderful economy, there is always work to do and love to give." That's true and I want to always remember that, that even if I get infirm as I grow old, I can always be a prayer warrior and that's what I really want to be. It is also a good way to resist satan.
Have a great weekend!
