Today at Awaken, we ended the book of 1 Peter. That makes 5 books of the Bible down and only 61 left to go (actually we’ll end the 5th one this Wednesday)! Whenever a study is ends, people are always curious about what’s next – I love the anticipation and hunger! I’ve been looking for an opportunity to teach this next series for a while, and now is the perfect time.
We closed 1 Peter today with this description of Satan…
“…your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” – 1 Peter 5:8
On that note, beginning May 1, we’ll be taking a 3-week look at the 3 times in Scripture where Satan speaks: Genesis 3 – Eve & the Garden of Eden, Job 1-2 – God & the scene in heaven, and Matthew 4 – Jesus in the wilderness. It will be a very revealing study about who Satan is and how we should beat him down.
After all, “the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly” (Romans 16:20)!
Join us for Easter Sunday next weekend, then Speak of the Devil beginning May 1!
And as for what’s coming after this series, I’ll tell you this: it’s another study through a book – we’re going old school!
