HOWcan we not lose anything that has been given to
us? The only known method is to have a permanent vigilance attitude. The
success of any nation's security forces is to remain on general alert and
vigilant. They have come to understand that the enemy respects nothing, has no
vacations, and will certainly do whatever it takes to prevail in his work
against the nation he wishes to atone for. There is a sin that as Christians we
always commit and that is forgetting that we are in a permanent spiritual
warfare. Our enemy, the adversary, is only here to kill, steal and destroy.
Like a nation that has to protect itself from spies, Christians must be
vigilant so as not to be distracted and in that way we will not lose anything
that has been given to us.
"It is like the man who, going far away,
left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and
commanded the gatekeeper to watch."
Mark 13. 34
Servants or gatekeepers? How about servants and
gatekeepers. There is no higher or lower rank in the kingdom of Christ, we are
all measured by the same race and this already makes us special people because
we are children of God. Therefore, we have the authority given to by Christ so
that we extend the kingdom of him, taking the Word of God to all those who are
in need of the presence of God in their lives. Now, Christ in this verse did
not say who exactly the gatekeeper is. So, we should each one of us assume our
role of gatekeeper, regardless of whether we are apostles or those who sweep
the floor of the congregation, all but absolutely all of us are gatekeepers of
the kingdom of Christ.
“Watch therefore, because you do not know when
the master of the house will come; if at dusk, or at midnight, or at the
crowing of the rooster, or in the morning; so that when he comes suddenly, he
will not find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to everyone: Watch."
Mark 13. 35-37
In these verses, we find three times that he
tells us to watch, affirming that we are gatekeepers and that we must remain
vigilant, not neglecting anything that he has given us. So, if we are working,
let us be the best because for Christ we are doing it. If we are in the middle
of our studies, let us do it with excellence because for God we are doing it
and so I could continue, but let us reflect that with our good treatment we
will be the representatives of Jesus Christ here on earth and that our
excellence will be a living adoration that will break many chains In the
spiritual war we are fighting.
God bless you.
