Keep Your Head on a Swivel!

Any ex-football players should be able to tell you what the title of this post means but for those who have no clue what I’m talking about let me explain.  To keep your head on a swivel means to always be looking for someone who will try to hit you.  On defense you were always on the look out for the ball or for someone trying to keep you from getting to the ball.  I’ll never forget the time I forgot to keep my head on a swivel while playing on a kickoff team.  I got blindsided so hard that I was seeing stars and ended up walking to the wrong side of the field after the play.  For whatever reason this phrase always stuck with me…even years after playing my last down of football in high school.  

Nowadays i use this phrase in a spiritual sense.  As a Christian you should always keep their head on a swivel being on the look out for the enemy trying to take you out.  Too often well-meaning Christians get blindsided by sin and the Devil uses that to discredit not only them but also their God. 

What do you need to be on the lookout for?  What sin could easily take you down?  Be on the lookout and run away as far as you can from the appearance of Evil.  “Abstain from all appearance of evil. 1 Thess 5:22”  We as believers are living our lives on display for the World to see and the moment we give into the appearance of evil the World takes note.

KEEP YOUR HEAD ON A SWIVEL!  Don’t let yourself get blindsided by the Devil.  Keep your testimony straight and God’s name clear!
