Point Guardz: Turning Point’s New Men’s Group was created to enlist, enrich, and encourage men to follow after Christ as 2 Timothy 2:3 states, Endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
Here is our Point Guardz Devotional for Monday, June 5, 2017
In John 10:10 Jesus said, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
This passage brings to mind a couple of questions:
1) What “thief” are you allowing to rob you of your joy, your peace, your contentment, and enjoyment of your family and the abundant blessings God has endeavored to shower down upon you?
2) What steps will you take to “guard” and protect your families from those thieves?
As fathers, husbands, brothers, uncles, and mentors, our role is to be examples yes, but also to protect with integrity the sacred trust of our family and friends by ensuring NOTHING comes between them and abundant life promised to us in Christ, both now, and in the life to come.
It’s important to note here too that this abundant life mentioned here by Christ is only available through Him. No amount of money, success, or material things will even come close to the abundant life Christ affords us.
Let your prayer today be that God gives you courage, strength, and Holy Ghost boldness to fend off the enemy that comes to steal, kill, and destroy. And, also pray God open your eyes to remain vigilant and aware of these vicious attacks be they mental, emotional, spiritual, and even physical. The abundant life promised by Christ is free, but not cheap. It cost Him His Life.
May we Point Guardz be the protectors and defenders of this precious Gift of Abundant Life.
