“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”

(I Peter 5:8) (KJV) 

[su_pullquote align=”left”]He would have been with Jesus when He was arrested, he may not have been deceived by satan. But he followed Jesus at a distance. [/su_pullquote]

“But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest’s palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end”. (Mathew 26:58)                                                                   

Peter disciple of Jesus Christ, who is called by Mathew in Chapter 10 as the first, Simon, who is called Peter, walked with Jesus and proclaimed that Jesus is the “Son of God”.

“And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Mathew 16:16)

Peter, Andrew and John are the three disciples who will always with Jesus Christ when He lived on this earth. But in this verse Mathew 26:58,

He walked afar from Jesus. This is the first mistake which he committed. Peter who walked close with Jesus until then starts walking with a distance, which made him reject his own master whom he served all those days and saw all miracles done by Him.

If he would have been with Jesus when He was arrested, he may not have been deceived by satan. But he followed Jesus at a distance.

[su_pullquote align=”right”]Examine your heart and patch out everything which separates you from God even a single minute in your life! [/su_pullquote]

Even in your life sin will not enter in whole but with simple things at first. It might be like a small thing to you but if you do that you are opening a big gate for satan in your life, he is very cunning he knows if you don’t fall in small sins then you can’t be touched by him.

You may think what big can happen if I do this for just a minute and can read Bible or go to Church after that. But Friends be careful for this small thing is making you to fall in a huge pit. Peter who walked with Jesus couldn’t withstand it then How much more do you need to be alert in your life? That’s why Peter Himself gives us this advice by his experience,

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (I Peter 5:8)

Examine your heart and patch out everything which separates you from God even a single minute in your life! May God bless you and keep you safe from all your temptations. Amen
