“Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.” Matthew 24:42

To watch is the wise exercise of a real Christian who is:

  • sensible of his own weakness,
  • loves his Savior,
  • fears to grieve his Spirit;
  • is well acquainted with the depth of corruption in his fallen nature;
  • is well apprised of the invisible powers of darkness, and
  • hearkens to the voice of his kind and adorable Shepherd.

This watchfulness discovers awakened attention to our spiritual concerns, has the love of Christ for its motive, and is accompanied with a constant dependence on Christ for protection from dangers and for strength against all enemies, together with supplies of grace in every time of need.

If our religion be only in outward profession, it may pass without watching. But if it be true grace in the heart from Jesus Christ, that sacred treasure will need to be guarded with the most anxious circumspection. The exhortation is to all God’s children, necessary in every condition, in every stage of a Christian’s life: in youth, manhood, in old age; in prosperity and in adversity; in the seasons of consolation and in times of temptation; in company and when alone.

O blessed Jesus, help me to watch and pray; let me be always ready; keep me in Your love and preserve me by Your power, till my change shall come.

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.
