Ezekiel 33:1-6 (NLT)
1 Once again a message came to me from the Lord: 2 �Son of man, give your people this message: �When I bring an army against a country, the people of that land choose one of their own to be a watchman. 3 When the watchman sees the enemy coming, he sounds the alarm to warn the people. 4 Then if those who hear the alarm refuse to take action, it is their own fault if they die. 5 They heard the alarm but ignored it, so the responsibility is theirs. If they had listened to the warning, they could have saved their lives. 6 But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn�t sound the alarm to warn the people, he is responsible for their captivity. They will die in their sins, but I will hold the watchman responsible for their deaths.�

Ezekiel reveals a message from the Lord that those who hear the watchman cry out and fail to respond is responsible for ignoring the warning. However, if the watchman fails to warn the people then he is the one responsible for their deaths.

As Christians we each have a responsibility to be a watchman. We are to alert others to the perils of sin and show them the mercy and grace of Christ. Our mission is to convey the message of The Gospel of Jesus Christ to others. If they fail to listen that is their responsibility. However if we fail to share The Gospel of Jesus Christ with those who are perishing then we bear the responsibility. Have you let others know where you stand in your walk with Christ?
