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.

    Thank you Mr.Billy Graham. Yes we must be on guard . God is good He shows what the devil is like. When we suffer much we also reap knowledge about the enemy. Then it is possible to see him defeated by the Lord Jesus. What a joy when Jesus strikes back. Halleluja! Life is always worth living.

    Richard, you are a creation of God. You are loved by Him. The bible tells us that greater is God who is in us than Satan who is in the world. I’m praying for victory in you through the power in Jesus’ name.

    If we were to drive down a major highway and not pay attention to what we were doing , we would soon find ourselves in big trouble. So it is with life , we must remain alert. Particularly to the deceptions of Satan. He is constantly trying to trip us up . Especially those who profess to love the Lord.
