Always Be Vigilant

When I was in the hospital in Hawaii, I read again of the shocking events which led up to the destruction of the United States fleet at Pearl Harbor. On that fateful day of December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked. We know now that that attack was invited by our failure to be always vigilant. The result was the destruction of our fleet-the cause was tragic indifference. When comfort and ease and pleasure are put ahead of duty and conviction, progress is always set back.

What makes us Christians shrug our shoulders when we ought to be flexing our muscles? What makes us apathetic in a day when there are loads to lift, a world to be won, and captives to be set free? Why are so many bored, when the times demand action? Christ told us that in the last days there would be an insipid attitude toward life.

Listen to Billy Graham’s message on living boldly for Christ.

Prayer for the day

Take away the apathy, Father, that so often blinds my vision.

    As Christians we are becoming numb to the atrocities that are perpetuating our society. Immorality is rampant and our voices are slowly becoming drowned out. However, Christ is preparing a place for us , even now. We must remain vigilant , as our Heavenly Father knows our every thought and hears every prayer. Thank you Holy God for your steadfast Love and Amazing Grace , during these difficult days .

    Even the boy scouts are taught to be prepared. Satan is a master of deception . Be ready with Gods help. Study his Holy Word regularly.
