Fear and cowardice is not something you wound associate, as characteristic of a Christian. But, I am afraid too many have taken this characteristic in this age.
Often times Christians are ridiculed for our belief, that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior, and is the only way to eternity with God. But, not so much just that part, but also the part about following the moral laws. Satan above all else wants to take as many people with him to Hell. So of course he wants Christians to shut up about it, so his followers do his bidding to silence Christians from getting the message out. But, we cannot allow it!
We must “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:11 ESV)
We must not be afraid of what man does, and realize that the very individuals that we may think we are fighting, we’re actually trying to save, by sharing the Gospel!
We are to be Watchmen!
Unafraid, unwavering, this time on Earth is just a blip in our future, this blip is our time to prove ourselves to God, that we are worthy to spend eternity with Him, and the only way to prove that is through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Because when we have faith in Jesus, we are transformed by the Holy Spirit. It only makes sense, that God wants us to be transformed, if he allowed us into heaven untransformed, it wouldn’t be heaven for very long!
We must live with eternity on our minds! And remember, we are the Watchmen!
Warning our fellow man, in love, that Jesus is the only way, and that the End is near. And God needs us to help bring as many people as we can, to Him.
Don’t be afraid, stay strong in faith and God will give the strength to be a Watchmen.
