Christians are at war . . . not with unbelievers, but with the adversary of their souls. The apostle Peter called Satan the “enemy,” and in 1 Peter 5:8–11, he explained how this opponent works in crafty ways to unravel the goodness of God’s plan for His creation. Pastor Chuck Swindoll counsels Christians to stand their ground. Though Satan may appear to be a fearsome foe, the devil was rendered powerless by the blood of the Lamb. Depend on Christ to give you the courage to stand nose-to-nose with the adversary.

Many people worship the god of success, sacrificing their time, energy, and focus to achieve their dreams of “the good life.” The closer they get to it, however, the more elusive it becomes. Those who worship this idol believe that enough success will eventually bring happiness, satisfaction, and relief. Yet even Peter, living in the first century, knew this path led to a dead-end. In 1 Peter 5:5–7, the bold apostle demonstrated that true satisfaction is found only in serving Christ. Find fulfillment in Christ as Pastor Chuck Swindoll advises you to pursue eternal significance and be truly well-off in God’s eyes.

The apostle Peter didn’t see himself as the powerful CEO of the early church. Instead, he saw himself as a humble shepherd overseeing God’s dear sheep. A godly leader has the responsibility to care for and to protect his flock. Peter embraced this perspective, and in 1 Peter 5:1–4, he encouraged other Christian ministers to pursue a lifestyle of humility and love. Hear Pastor Chuck Swindoll’s call to embrace the way of the shepherd.
