“Now as for you, son of man, I have appointed you a watchman for the house of Israel; so you will hear a message from My mouth and give them warning from Me.”
Did you know that it is God’s will for your life to be a watchman and warn unbelievers? God has commissioned all His children to go and preach to gospel to the entire world. He loves every person He created and longs to restore their relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul stated his life’s purpose “We proclaim Him (Christ), admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose I labor, striving according to His power which mightily works within me.” Colossians 1:28. The word “admonish” means to warn.
We should warn the unbeliever about the judgment of God that is coming if they refuse to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. Are you warning your friends, classmates, neighbors and coworkers of the judgment to come, or are you spiritually asleep? Jesus warned people. “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” Jesus proclaimed God’s love and His judgment. We all know John 3:16 about His love for mankind and offer of eternal life. But, do we finish the message with all of Christ’s words? “He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:17 I think many may not coming to Christ today because we are afraid to warn them of His judgment. They think, “All is well!” and do not see their serious problem of offending a holy God.
Do not let the PC crowd make you afraid of doing what is right and loving. Let us be faithful watchmen and warn our friends of God’s impending judgment and call them to repentance. Ask God to move you by His love to “preach Christ crucified” with boldness and prepare their hearts to receive the truth.
