πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Are You A Watchman?

The Prophet Ezekiel was appointed by God as a β€œwatchman” over the house of Israel (Ezek. 33:7). He was held responsible to warn the wicked from their way, for while God must deal justly with sin, He had declared: β€œI have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live” (Ezek. 33:11).

If Ezekiel failed to warn the wicked, they would die in their sins, but their blood would nevertheless be required at his hand. If he faithfully warned them, however, and they refused to heed the warning, they would die in their sins, but he would be absolved of all responsibility (Ezek. 33:8,9).

Yes it is true that we are living under another dispensation and that our message is one of grace but this does not diminish, it increases our responsibility toward the lost.

If we believers carelessly allow the lost to go to Christless graves are we not morally responsible for their doom, and will we not be held accountable at the Judgment Seat of Christ? (II Cor. 5:10,11). This is why we find Paul reminding the Ephesian elders that he had not ceased to warn men β€œnight and day with tears” (Acts 20:31).

As the Apostle looked back over his ministry among the Ephesians he could say: β€œI take you to record this day that I am pure from the blood of all men” (Acts 20:26). And this had been true of his ministry in general. Indeed, it was now his desire that, whatever the cost, he might finish his course with joy, and the ministry which he had received of the Lord Jesus, to testify β€œthe gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24).

God give us who are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, a greater sense of our responsibility toward the lost! source
