DCLM Daily Manna Sunday 28 August 2022 OUTLINE

The role of the watchman in ancient times is to warn the people of impending danger. While the watchman who warns of the physical danger is important, that of the spiritual is even more important. The spiritual watchman, the Christian, has the duty of warning men of the danger of not obeying the word of God and the damnation that follows it.

God called Ezekiel as a prophet-watchman over the house of Israel. He was to warn the wicked to turn away from his wickedness and the righteous to maintain his righteousness to avert God’s judgment. Failure to do so will leave the people without the necessary warnings and eventually bring God’s judgment upon them. And because they were not warned, God would require their blood, in his hands.

Today, every born again Christian is called, like Ezekiel to be a watchman to bring God’s message of love and judgment to all men through the gospel. Except this gospel message is preached, men will not hear; and if they do not hear, they cannot be saved. The Lord Himself had set the example as He “went about all Galilee, teaching…and preaching…and healing all manner of sickness” (Matthew 4:23).

Apostle Paul said, “woe is unto me if I preach not the gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:16). John Knox prayed, “Lord, give me Scotland or else I die”. One prayer that was common during the days of William Seymour was, “Lord, this is another day that hell must lose men and women.” What is your prayer?

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Be a dependable watchman by taking the gospel to the dying world.
