God, Jesus, & the Devil
September 21, 2012 • 1 Peter 5:6-11
C.S. Lewis once wrote that when it comes to the devil, there are two equal but opposite mistakes that people make: they either think about the devil far too little or they think about him far too much. When the Apostle Peter rounded out his letter about suffering, he ended by bringing up something he’d not mentioned before: at the end of the day, Peter wrote, we suffer in this world because we have a real enemy and he’s the devil. But that is by no means all Peter has to say in his closing words of his first letter.
