The Vigilant Watchman

E-mail Print PDF

Throughout the Word of God we find many warnings of imminent danger. Two examples are Paul's general, open-ended warning to Tim­othy in 2 Timothy 3, and his much more specific and direct warning to Timothy of Alexander the copper­smith in 2 Timothy 4. By Paul's ex­ample we can conclude that it is im­portant for Christians to warn one another of potential danger and harm. We can actually find that not only is it important, it's required.


A License to Sin?

One may say, "We all sin. Some of us run a stop-light. Others do worse things. So, let's be gracious to one another." I do not hear the ur­gency for getting right with God, but a permissive attitude to allow for sin. When I hear people make such state­ments, I want to reply with, "Well, if you have sin in your life, then you need to repent, confess it and seek God's forgiveness."

We should give up the desire for living in sin at the time of our obedience to the gospel of Christ. Paul asked, "Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?" and answers his own question with, "God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?" (Romans 6:1-2). God does not bestow grace so that we can continue sinning. Paul goes on to explain how Christ regen­erated us with his blood in baptism and that we rise to walk in a new life.


The Influence of Parents

Years ago my father and I went to the pasture to bring in a cow with a new calf. The cow was gentle and somewhat of a pet. However, she hid her calf and ran to the other side of the pasture. My question was, "how are we going to catch her?" The answer was, "All we have to do is catch the calf and she will follow us to the barn." This proved true. When mama saw he was carrying her calf, she followed into the pen. This is one reason the devil wants our children. All too often, when a child is in the arms of the devil, the parents follow along.
