TEXT: 1 PETER 5:6-11

MEMORY VERSE: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 PETER 5:8).

The text under consideration outlines basic duties of the believer. He is called unto submission, humility, vigilance, faith, total dependence on God and sobriety. God is on the side of the humble to give him or her grace and spiritual uplift in every battle of life.

Every youth believer should know that he or she is in a constant war with the devil. The devil is like a roaring cruel lion looking for ways to devour unsuspecting youths. His strategy is to attack standing and faithful children of God through persecution, trials, temptations and challenges of life.

If you would overcome Satan, the tempter and accuser, you must resist him steadfastly in the faith. Resisting the devil means fighting manfully against his allurements to commit sins like fornication, pornography, and disrespect for parents and constituted authority in the school or the society.

You need to trust in the grace of God to keep you to the end. Remember, you must be a born again child of God to be able to conquer the devil.

QUOTE: You must resist him.

CHALLENGE: We are called to battle.

PRAYER: Help me Lord to stand.
