John Piper Explains The One Way Christians Can BEAT The Devil

There are many ways in which we can battle against the Devil and his schemes. Through prayer, worship and constantly fixing our eyes on Jesus, we can thwart the trials and temptations of Satan. But pastor John Piper suggests another way that has been highly effective for him in his Christian journey. 

"Memorizing Scripture makes meditation possible at times when you can't be reading the Bible, and meditation is the pathway to deeper understanding," Piper says. "If you're going to meditate on the law of the Lord day and night, you need to have some of it in your head."

Plus, it shapes the way we view the world, argues Piper. It "conforms my mind to God's viewpoint on everything." 

"Memorizing Scripture makes His word more readily accessible to overcoming the temptation of sin. Because God's warnings and promises are the way we conquer the deceitful lies of the Devil."

"Memorizing Scripture enables me to hit the Devil in the face with a force he cannot resist. To protect myself and my family from his assaults.

"What are you hitting him with?!" bellows Piper. "He is millions of times stronger than you. And he hates you, and your marriage, and your family, and this Church and God." 

"How anybody walks through this Devil-ruled world without a sword in their hand is beyond me."
