It’s amazing what a spilt second can cost you. For example, take your eyes off the road while driving and one can crash into the guard rail. Take your eyes off walking and just a step onto uneven pavement can cause a strained ankle. Yes, eyes were meant to look always ahead to keep one safe while walking. The same applies when it involves the soul of man. The Devil collects souls for eternal damnation and he would like yours (James 5:8).
All it takes is one spilt second and the devil could have you, so here is what a person must do in order to protect himself. First, one must obey the gospel so that his sins can be washed away (Acts 22:16, 2:38; Titus 3:3-7; Romans 6:1-18). Next, one must devote himself to faithfulness every moment because such doesn’t just happen (Titus 3:8; 2 Peter 1:1-11; 1 John 1:6-10; 2 Peter 3:17-18; James 4:7-10; Matthew 7:13-29).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
