Perspective On Life From The Point Of A Spiritual Soldier

Tags:
  1. I woke up this morning thinking along a particular line, and so wrote it down in the back of my Bible, and thought I would also share it here.
    Live the Christian life and read the Bible, not just to endure the troubles in this life, not just to get by, not just to obtain blessings in this life and for eternity, but to keep in mind, since the time of the Garden of Eden, man lives in the midst of a war between God and Satan, good and evil, and I am not just a stranger and a pilgrim upon this earth, but I am to be a soldier in the Lord's army. I am not here to pursue my own pleasure and welfare; I am here to battle for righteousness; I am here to fight against evil;OI I am here to rescue spiritual P.O.W.s, to support the Lord's other soldiers and to help those that are wounded. I must continue training to stay spiritually fit for battle, and help others train as well. I am to keep this in mind as I yearly read through the Bible and as I daily live on.

      One of my favorite chapters! There is much that is relevant to what I wrote, that was going through my mind, but I wanted to keep it short enough to keep the point at hand, and not to fill in so much as to be distracting. Hope you liked it, and that even more passages such as Ephesians comes to your mind.

      There's a book about Ephesians 6 called The Christian in Complete Armor, By William Gurnall, who lived in the 17th century.
