“But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat.” Matthew 13:25

No wonder that Christians lose their power and strength — if the enemy of souls finds them asleep! How soon may he gain an advantage from without — if a strict guard be not kept within! Though Satan seems to sleep sometimes and we should appear to be in no great danger — it is only his stratagem to make us careless. He never fails to be vigilant and watch for his opportunity — that he may battle us with advantage; and who knows but he may gain the victory by those very sins to which perhaps we, for many years, had hardly any temptation!

How cunningly does Satan work! How enticing is the world! Even in lawful things, very often — the most dangerous snares lie hidden. A single word that we hear, may be able to disturb our peace. One unguarded look is sometimes enough to infatuate our hearts. There is danger on all sides. Unless the Lord opens our eyes and preserves us on all occasions — each of us, even the best, may still be overcome and fatally hurt by sin and the world.

Satan is particularly intent upon beguiling the godly; and having caught them in his net — he triumphs exceedingly over them. O Lord, allow me never to sink into spiritual slumber again!

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
