Be stranger's and exiles in Satan's world

C/Ref: 1 Peter 2:11-12

Satan wants to be god.

God wants us to be humble - Satan wants us to be proud
God wants us to love others - Satan wants us to be selfish
God wants us to be pure - Satan wants us to be full of lust
God wants us to be obedient - Satan wants us to rebel

We are the targets in a spiritual war (1 Peter 2:11). Satan wants to keep us under his control.  He knows how he can tempt us by appealing to our 'flesh'. James 4:1

We should live, as God wants us to (1 Peter 2:12) - in good conducts, in pure lives and htis will silence our enemies and help them to believe in God.

Satan was to take your past and make it your future. (Mind games, low self esteem, anger, fear,"you will never be good enough")
When we ask Jesus Christ to be our Lord and Saviour God deals with our past and gives us a future.  So then we an live as 1 Peter 2:12 directs us.

"Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation."
