“Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: 3If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; 4Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.” Eze. 33:2-4
Though voting isn’t a principle for selecting ministers, we do all in a sense select ministers to be watchmen over our lives. I fear many believers are very casual about this and just attend a particular church out of convenience or social connections instead of the assurance that there are men of God watching over the souls of the brethren. What kind of watchmen do you have watching over your life?
