John 13:27-30

After the morsel, Satan then entered into him (John 13:27a)

Let us take heed that we are not 'ignorant of Satan's devices.' He is still going to and fro in the earth, seeking whom he may devour. He is about our path and about our bed and spies out all our ways. Our only safety lies in resisting him at the first and not listening to his first advances. For this we are all responsible. Strong as he is, he has no power to do us harm, if we cry to the stronger one in heaven and use the means which he has appointed. It is a standing principle of Christianity and will ever be found true: 'Resist the devil, and he will flee from you' (James 4:7).
