Peter warns Christians of the reality of our enemy, the devil, but he also makes us aware of how we are to respond to this threat. Alistair Begg emphasizes Peter’s warning, prompting us to actively resist the ways of the evil one. By being self-controlled and alert, we will understand the reality of spiritual warfare and be able to resist Satan’s schemes.
There are two common mistakes people make when thinking about the devil– we become preoccupied with his existence or ignore it altogether. In this series on spiritual warfare, Alistair Begg helps listeners understand the often overlooked reality that there is a war happening all around us every day. As Christians and soldiers in God’s army, The Bible calls us to understand who our enemy is, where this battle is taking place, and how to defend ourselves before we can be successful in this ongoing, unseen, and unavoidable war. Though the fate of our enemy has been decided, the battle rages on, and each of us must make use of the armor and weapons that God has given us to defend ourselves from Satan’s attacks.
