Of What Use Is The Devil?

"In the first place, God lets Satan put us through the fire of trial that our faith may be manifested as valuable gold, pure and genuine, to His glory; think of Job.

Secondly, by means of such provocation God reveals unto us our own spiritual weakness.

In the third place, our Lord uses Satan as a shepherd uses his dog to drive the sheep to the shepherd.

And fourthly, God must triumph over Satan not by hindering his activities, but by first letting him put forth all his might and then overthrowing him with His Divine Supremacy."

~Abraham Kuyper
