Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8
On this journey, it's important to know that not only do you have a Savior but you also need to know you have any enemy.
No need to be afraid of him because Scripture tells us that greater is He who is in us (Christ) than he who is in the world (satan.)
But as Christians we need to be aware we have an enemy who hates us and would like to destroy us.
He is not our friend.
Be watchful, my brother, my sister. Be careful to pay attention to what is going on in your life. The enemy would love nothing more than to tempt you to mess up and cause people to look on Christ with disfavor. A Christian represents Christ; therefore, falling into sin reflects badly on Him.
Instead, let us focus on lifting up the name of Christ by living as responsibly, as purely as possible.
The Journey is our way Home. There is nothing more important than making that final destination. Jesus paid my ticket there, but I have to walk it out. In October, I will be observing the things that happen while traveling the Journey and writing a daily post about my observations.
Because I like to stretch myself, I will also do a challenge within a challenge - 31 days of 5 minute free writes. I will take a topic and run with it, writing furiously for 5 minutes, tailoring it to relate to my theme of examining life along the Journey.
