Who’s Watching Out for You?
By Rick Warren

“A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NLT)

When you go on vacation, you probably ask a neighbor to look after your house while you’re gone. In fact, some communities even have neighborhood watch groups. But while your neighbors watch your stuff, who’s watching out for your soul?

Who in your life defends you, protects you, and helps you stay on track? 

No matter who you are, you need people who will look out for you and warn you of spiritual traps. You’ll find those people in your church family. In fact, that’s what the family of God is all about.

Philippians 2:4 says, “Look out for one another's interests, not just for your own” (GNT).

We all have blind spots—areas of struggle and temptation in our lives that we can’t see. That’s where your church family comes in. They stay vigilant, looking out for the enemy.

You have an enemy who wants to destroy your life. In fact, before you even wake up, Satan is thinking about how to defeat you every day with temptations and trials, dead ends and detours. He fights with an arsenal of hurts, habits, and hang-ups. And if you try to fight him on your own, that arsenal can leave you defeated. That’s why you need to find a community of believers who will help you.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 says, “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken” (NLT).

Community—your church family—is God’s answer to spiritual defeat. We are always better together.
