The Watchman Sees

Ezekiel 33:6
But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.

The Watchman Sees
The prophet Ezekiel warns us that those who have seen yet do not sound the alarm will suffer the consequences. The watchman must always remain vigilant and alert. In faith, you have been invited to see and know the truth of Christ and the salvation bought for you by His blood. You are the watchman tasked with telling everyone the Good News of Christ crucified for all. We dare not keep Jesus a secret, like the children’s hymn goes, “Hide it under a bushel? No! I’m going to let it shine.” We are to let the light of Christ shine.
During this time of the year, it can often be difficult. The post-Christmas blues set in as friends and family part ways, the festive holiday decorations are eventually put away, and life returns to normal. And yet, this is precisely when Christ’s light shines the brightest, as we share God’s love with all those He places in our lives. Because God has come, Immanuel is accomplished, God is with us, we can be eager to spread that message.
 We are still in the season of Christmas in the Church calendar. We are still celebrating the birth of our Savior in a Bethlehem manger, and we are still beneficiaries of a silent night which was broken by an angelic choir so long ago. We watchmen see the Christ and ring the bell to tell everyone, the Christ child is here!
