Right from the creation of the earth God had commissioned human being to be a watchman over the living creature including human being. The job of the government armed forces is to protect the citizen and their properties of their nation. At any point in time they have a task(s) ahead of them to be render to their family, relatives etc but God gave the elect the greatest task which is called ¨Watchman¨
Psalms 33:18 - 19 ¨ Behold, the eye of theLord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy, To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in Famine.
Ezekiel 3:17 – 21¨17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul¨

Unfortunately, only few leaders, ministers of the gospel watch over their flocks in prayers likewise the flocks must also pray for the leaders and Ministers. A watchman is always at the service of his master both days and nights.
WHAT TO DO.
Ask for forgiveness:- Isa 59:1-3 ¨ Behold, theLord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
It becomes an offensive when you abandoned your responsibility as a child of God.
