Are you a trumpet blower? Does your trumpet blow a tune of warning to the lost? I think my trumpet needs repairing. What?
I read in Ezekiel 33 this morning. Ezekiel is telling about the watchman, who should blow his horn to warn the people of the approaching enemy. In that day, if the watchman fell asleep and allowed the enemy to invade, he would be executed.
Are we not responsible for telling others about Christ? Shouldn't we be blowing our trumpet to warn the lost about hell. The enemy is not just approaching our camp. He is here and actively seeking to devour the citizens of this world.
Although we wont be executed for failing to tell others about Christ, we will stand someday before a holy God. We will be held accountable for those we should have told.
God has really convicted me this morning. I have failed to witness many times even when I felt the Holy Spirit moving me to do so. I also let fear keep me quiet; always afraid I will say the wrong thing or turn someone the other direction.
Give me the courage to witness to the lost. Help me to remember that my strength comes from you. I want to allow the Holy Spirit to work through me and lead me to tell others about you and their need for salvation. Amen.
But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.
Blessings to all,
