1 Peter 5:8 [ESV] Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8 [Message] Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping.
So here is the question; “Am I a sinner trying to be a saint or a saint that sins?”
I’m a saint that sins.
I am not without intentional sin, I have my favorites; it’s sad!
But most of my sinning is accidental. I’m in the middle of it before I ever knew I started.
Peter’s right, I’ve got to be more watchful, stay alert!
Damn, I hate when the devil wins, oops!
Don’t be nonchalant about the devil.
What might seem petty, might be a real pity.
Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought me in safety to this new day: Preserve me with your mighty power, that I may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all I do direct me to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
