Resisting the Roaring Lion
by Rick Boxx
February 11, 2010
As a new Christian many years ago I was having dinner with several banking peers who knew of my faith. After heavy drinking on their part, they suddenly decided it would be great sport to drag me to a strip bar.
When they called for a cab I went to the restroom. Knowing how difficult it would be to deter this rowdy crowd, I locked myself in and stayed there until they quit banging on the door and left.
1 Peter 5:8-9 teaches, "Be self controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings."
Sometimes the only way to avoid evil is to resist.
