He only is my rock and my salvation: He is my defense; I shall not be moved (Psalm 62:6).
TRUTH: The words "point man" became popular during the Vietnam war to describe the leader of a patrol who would act as both the "captain" to coordinate the defense of his men or attack if/when necessary. It is kind of like the defense man in hockey who skates around the blue line but can take off at the first real opportunity for a slapshot. In Christianity, two things are happening, Jesus is BOTH our Defense man on point AND He is calling us to be His point men and women here on earth, for such a time as this.
Just as a true metaphorical rock does not move, we are to stand firm in the Faith because the Bright North Star of Christ never moves.
When the hounds of heresy nip and bark at our heels- keep the faith.
When the doctrines of demons threaten to distract our mission - keep the faith.
When the pointless practices of a perishing world prolong our anxiety - keep the faith.
It is not small thing to dismiss. We called to be the point men for our families, friends, neighbors, communities, states, provinces, regions and beyond - even for those who do not keep the Faith. We do so by being their intercessor, teacher, warrior and friend in Christ. Are you ready to be "on point"?
