God has not left us to fend for ourselves. He has offered us two people to help guide us through life. The first is the Watchman. The Watchman can hear what God is saying and warn the people about impending doom or judgment.
The Watchman had to be prepared to tell the truth unreservedly because people’s lives were on the line. If the Watchman heard the Word but neglected to tell the people, then all responsibility shifted to the Watchman. But, if the people heard the Word and then disregarded it, they would bear their sin and consequences alone. God also gave us Shepherds, in addition to Watchmen, to lead us and feed us.
Shepherds are assigned by God to feed us a healthy diet so that we can grow and be the sheep that God has called us to be. God holds the Watchman and the Shepherd to high standards because they are caring for His people.
God is always trying to warn us from danger and nourish us so we can be who He has called us to be. Allow these people to assist you in becoming who God created you to be.
