It seems, too often, we lose sight of our goal, of our mission. We get comfortable and distracted, slowly drifting away from holiness, thus, our salvation, and so importantly, the salvation of our brethren. We must not forget we are called to be disciples and we are called to make disciples. We are called to use our gifts and talents. We are called to speak the truth even when the world is against us. We are called to stay awake and be vigilant, for we do not know the hour in which He will come again. There is a spiritual battle among us. We must prepare ourselves to fight.
