1 PETER BIBLE STUDY



BE SOBER BE VIGILANT BIBLE STUDY
YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL BIBLE VERSE

Welcome back to Daily Bread, and the concluding chapter of Peterís first epistle. In the first chapter of this letter, as you may recall, Peter was addressing this writing to believing Jewish people who were not living in Israel, however, if youíre reading this letter before you read what Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 3:16, let me tell you what he said. Paul said, All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine (teaching), for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect (complete), thoroughly furnished (prepared) unto all good works. Peter will be talking about this a little bit more in his second epistle as well, so just in case you didnít know, this letter is really addressed to anyone, anywhere, anytime.


BE SOBER BE VIGILANT CONCERN
YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL WARNING

1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour
...

Now, letís also refresh our memories a little bit about the character of Peter. Who is this person who is giving us this advice? Well, heís one of Jesusí twelve Apostles, who will sit on a throne in Jesusí kingdom judging the twelve tribes of Israel. He is the one that Jesus said would be called Cephas, which means, Rock, and Jesus said he would be the rock upon which Jesus would build His church. Jesus told Peter that He would give him the keys to the kingdom of Heaven, and said, that whoever Peter found innocent on earth would be found innocent in Heaven and whoever he held as bound (guilty) on earth, would be held bound in Heaven. Thatís why people imagine Peter at the gates of Heaven, with the authority of deciding who enters and who doesnít.

Peter is the Apostle who walked on water to Jesus. He is also the Apostle who denied Jesus three times the night of Jesusí arrest. Peter jumped from a fishing boat and swam to shore when Jesus appeared to the Apostles on the shore one morning after His resurrection. Peterís shadow healed people. An Angel of God freed Peter when He was imprisoned for preaching the Gospel. Peter was the one who had the vision of the sheet, with the message of God, saying that the Gentiles were now accepted by God. Peter indeed started the foundation of the church. He has some impressive credentials, and he has human qualities as well. He spent 3 Ĺ years with Jesus, at His side, ministering to Him, learning from Him, loving Him. Letís go ahead and read what else he has to share with us now.

I, who am an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed, urge the elders among you to feed the flock of God which is among you, taking responsibility for them, not being forced, but willingly, not for dishonest gain, but of a ready mind, neither as being lords over Godís heritage, but being examples to the flock. Remember when Jesus told Peter to feed His sheep (John 21:15-17)? Now, Peter is passing on the privilege to us. He goes on, And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, you will receive a crown of glory that doesnít fade away.

Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to the elder. Yes, all of you, be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility, because God resists the proud, and gives Grace to the humble. This is truly something that young people have forgotten how to do. The world has made it cool to be disrespectful, and peers encourage this kind of behavior everywhere. Itís absolutely astounding how children talk to their teachers, their relatives, their coaches, their parents ... And the list goes on. Peter would be horrified. He says, Humble yourselves therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may raise you up in due time, laying all your cares on Him, because He cares for you.


BE SOBER BE VIGILANT TRUTH
YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL DANGER

Many of us can use this advice about being humble, ourselves, and then our examples to our children may make some difference. A little weed, if itís not pulled when itís little, can become a tree thatís next to impossible to get rid of.

Now, Peter gives some great advice, that you may want to take to heart, because a lot of folks donít really believe that itís true, but it really is. He says, Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks around, seeking whom he may devour.

If youíve read the Book of Job, you know that this is true. And the movies that you see with spirits lurking around, that seem so much like science fiction, are not really so far fetched. Theyíre really waiting for every weak moment that you have as an opportunity to pounce. You canít see them, thatís why many donít believe it, but you canít see the wind either. You canít see love. You canít see heat or cold. Yet you believe in all those things. Theyíre out there searching. It is not pleasant to imagine but it is TRUTH that there are evil spirits that seek to have you fail. However we have been given power over these evil spirits but rejoice not in that TRUTH but that our names are written in the book of life. (Luke 10:19-20) No, it is best not to open the door to evil spirits by way of fear, doubt, pride, anger, lust etc ... But rather, ponder on the Holy Spirit as He is the comforter of our souls.

Peter says, Resist these imps with strong Faith, knowing that other Christians in the world are being pursued by these rascals as well. But the God of all Grace, who has called us to share His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, make you perfect (complete), establish (confirm), strengthen and settle (comfort) you. To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen


BE SOBER BE VIGILANT SUMMARY
GOD'S GRACE KEEPS YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL AWAY

It then says ... (Penned) by Silvanus, (Peter dictated the letter and Silvanus wrote it) a faithful brother to you, as I believe, I have written briefly, encouraging, and testifying that this is the true Grace of God wherein you stand. The Church that is in Babylon, chosen together with you, greets you, and so does Marcus, my son. Greet one another with a kiss of charity (love). Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

What a wonderful letter! Donít you wish you could receive a letter like that? Well, guess what ... You just did! Whenever you receive a letter, you probably usually read it at least twice, to make sure you didnít miss anything. Well, just put a little "Dear Your Name Here" at the beginning of any of the letters in the Bible, and read them again. Youíll find that youíve really missed a lot reading them through only once. Congratulations on completing The First Epistle of Peter with Daily Bread. As always, canít wait to have you join again for more, so be sure to come on back 'cause weíve got more mail for ya! Next time weíll be opening The Second Epistle of Peter at Daily Bread. See you then!
