Professional Speaking :: Jesus The Sentry

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines the word “Sentry” as a “guard”, especially a soldier who stands guard at a point of passage. With this definition in mind, would we be able to consider Jesus to be a Sentry?

The Bible says that not only does the Battle belong to the Lord (1 Samuel 17:47), but that safety (victory) is of him as well (Proverbs 21:31) and Jesus is the guardian of our souls (1 Peter 2:25). In other words, Jesus is the Sentry of our Souls and he keeps guard of us against the evil one, because he is faithful (2 Thessalonians 3:3) and what is more is that Jesus establishes those whom he guards (2 Thessalonians 3:3).

Points to ponder:
Are you guarded by Jesus The Sentry? When he guards you, safety (victory) is assured, for the battle belongs to him!

2 Thessalonians 3:3 (ESV)
Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you,
and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith.
But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.
