Be Vigilant 

Posted by Pastor Ron Monday, May 05, 2014 3:06:49 PM

As Believers we need to be vigilant. As fathers and mothers we need to be vigilant. As pastors and elders we need to be vigilant.

We need to carefully guard that which has been entrusted to us. Out faith, our children's faith.. the Faith of the church.

There is a hostile world out there at war against faith. Your faith is worth more than gold.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

1 Timothy 1:19 keeping a firm grip on your faith and on yourself. After all, this is a fight we're in. There are some, you know, who by relaxing their grip and thinking anything goes have made a thorough mess of their faith.

Jude 3  ...defend the Faith that God has once for all given to his people.

Revelation 3:11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.
