A Call to Vigilance

Charles Bridges:

“The moment that utter weakness loses its hold and forgets the need of habitual dependence—this is the moment of a certain fall. The most exalted Christian attainments, the longest standing in the Church, the most extensive usefulness in the world, the richest store of spiritual gifts—all furnish no security against the crisis. The most experienced is exposed, no less than the weakest babe in the family. Oh! what need is there to ‘watch unto prayer’ (1 Pet. iv. 7), and to walk closely with God!”

From Ecclesiastes (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, reprint 1981) 18.
