Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
God has giving us responsibilities for our walk while on this planet.
WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO CHECK OUR BRAIN AT THE DOOR OF THE CHURCH!
It is our responsibility to develop our intellect and knowledge for wisdom and labor. God expects us to work with knowledge and skills. If you do not study to show yourself approved, then you show your lack of self-control. You will also lack the intelligence of being properly alert.
Do not let the enemy devour you due to a lack of knowledge. You can only be alert when you have the knowledge. For instance, a firefighter knows how to enter a burning building with proper alertness to the risks around them. While someone without proper training and knowledge would only get themselves hurt or killed. They would be devoured by flames.
Prepare yourself for today's journey. Study God's Word and get your sword ready.
