OLH: Stand Firm in the Faith

Stand Firm in the Faith
1 Peter 4:12-5:13

1 Peter 5:8-9 says, “Be alert and of sober mind.  Your enemy, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.  Resist him.  Stand firm in the faith.”  

We used to live a couple blocks from a zoo.  At night you could hear the lions roar.  What if one escaped and was roaming around the neighborhood?  What would you do?  I wouldn’t go down a dark alley alone.  I would travel with others (and make sure I could run faster than at least one other person).  I would take it seriously.  I’d shore up any vulnerabilities I would have, look out for loved ones, secure our home… 

Sounds like a spiritual conversation waiting to happen.  And it will, Lord willing, Sunday November 5th.  Don’t be square, be free to share, see you there,
