I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem;
they will never be silent day or night.
You who call on the LORD,
give yourselves no rest,
(Isaiah 62:6 (NIV))
Are you content with the way things are in this world?
Have you accepted the sin and the wars as simply a part of life?
Do you go about your business with an attitude that says as long as it doesn’t effect me, then what does it matter?
Is this what the Body of Christ is called to do?
Is this what you think of as fulfilling the great commission?
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
(Mark 16:15 (NIV))
Are we fulfilling this commandment if we have an attitude similar to the questions that I asked previously? Are we truly watchmen if we ignore the sin that we are called to stand against? Are we truly part of the Body of Christ if we don’t fulfill what we have been told to do? Has the church become complacent in our responsibilities?
A watchman is supposed to alert people to danger. What is more dangerous than sin?
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(Romans 6:23 (NIV))
Sin can lead any of us to a point where we fall away from the faith. I promise that I will do all that I can to be a watchman. Will you join me?
