Trusting and following Jesus is vital to the Christian’s walk and faith. But this world is full of distraction and temptation that is intended to keep us from doing so. Therefore, Jesus' words here are meant to serve as a reminder to keep our eyes on Him. For He alone is the only one who can save us, redeem us, restore us, protect us, defend us and keep us safe and secure until the end! Therefore, Jesus is telling His disciples over and over to be on guard and stay awake so that they’re not led astray from trusting and following Him.
