What to do When the Devil Accuses You

I read this quote from Martin Luther today and found it a very powerful tonic against the devil's devices. Evil is powerful in this world, but in the light of Jesus Christ who lived, suffered, died, and was raised again from the dead it becomes utterly impotent! May we learn to use this fact as a weapon in spiritual war. 

"So when the devil throws your sins in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: 'I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where he is there I shall be also!'"
--- Martin Luther
