God’s intended consequences: Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

 

Date : 2017-08-31
Speaker : Professor Paul Naumann

1 Peter 5:8-9 (Listen)

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 444 st. 1,2: Rise! To Arms! With Prayer Employ You Hymnary.org link

1. Rise! To arms! With prayer employ you, 
O Christians, lest the Foe destroy you, 
For Satan has designed your fall. 
Wield God’s Word, a weapon glorious! 
Against each foe you’ll be victorious; 
Our God will set you o’er them all. 
Is Satan strong and fell? 
Here is Immanuel. 
Sing hosanna! 
The strong ones yield, 
With Christ our Shield, 
And we as conqueror’s hold the field. 

2. Cast afar this world’s vain pleasures, 
Aye, boldly fight for heavenly treasures, 
And steadfast be in Jesus’ might. 
He will help, whate’er betide you, 
And naught will harm with Christ beside you; 
By faith you’ll conquer in the fight. 
Then shame, thou weary soul! 
Look forward to the goal: 
There joy waits thee. 
The race, then, run; 
The combat done, 
Thy crown of glory will be won.
