Watchfulness

Additional Links

Vigilance, or care to avoid surrounding enemies and dangers. We are to watch against the insinuations of Satan; the allurements of the world; the deceitfulness of our hearts; the doctrines of the erroneous; and, indeed, against every thing that would prove inimical to our best interests. We are to exercise this duty at all times, in all places, and under all circumstances, 1 Corinthians 16:13 . Luke 12:37 .

To watch, is also to wait for and expect: thus we are,

1. To watch the providence of God.

2. The fulfillment of the prophecies.

3. God's time for our deliverance from troubles, Psalms 130:1-8 :

4. We are to watch unto prayer, Ephesians 6:18 .

5. For death and judgment, Mark 13:37 .
