Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1Peter 5:8
A devil named Screwtape is writing to his nephew Wormwood. Wormwood is assigned to a man and it is his goal to bring him 'down' to their 'father's house' for eternity.
My dear Wormwood,
There is nothing like suspense and anxiety for barricading a human's mind against the Enemy. He wants men to be concerned with what they do; our business is to keep them thinking about what will happen to them.
Your affectionate uncle,
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: John 10:27
For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, [and] as [in] the day of temptation in the wilderness: Psalm 95:7-8
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10
Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Isaiah 55:6
