In modern military parlance, to “take point”, “walk point” or to be a “point man” calls a soldier – a man – to be “On Point”; and, assume the first and most exposed position of the unit. That is, the unit existing/advancing through hostile or unsecured territory. The soldier knowingly accepts that he will be the first to take on the attack; the only time this isn’t true is when the enemy determines to allow the one “On Point” to pass in order to ambush the unsuspecting unit. This inherent risk of being “On Point” creates the need for constant and extreme preparation and alertness.
If you are a North Side Baptist Church male from the ages of 10 to 100 – this is for you! If you are new to the battle, come and begin the foundational preparation needed to get On Point. If you have been On Point for many years – come and learn how to reflect on your victories and defeats in order to better tune your heart and be refueled for the fights ahead. And most certainly, if you are oblivious to the war please come and learn how vulnerable you are – and those that you love.
I Corinthians 16:13NASB: “Be on the alert/watchful. Stand firm in the faith. Act like men. Be strong.”NIV and NLT “Be on your guard; Stand firm in the faith; Be courageous; Be Strong.”
‘Be on the alert;’ ‘Be on your guard;’ – This fits hand in hand with our ministry name be ‘On Point’, ready to move, defend, watchful and ready. In fact the greek word here denotes ‘readiness’. Men can’t idly sit back and not lead, serve, defend, protect. The enemy is prowling around, seeking his prey, looking to devour and steal, kill and destroy all that is precious….our family, our marriage, our children. We have to be alert and ready for the battle.
