Another Veterans Day

Today’s Message! An awesome message by LTC Chaplain Randy Griffin:

Christians wear the uniform but refuse to work in God’s army.  Our nation needs God’s people to be in the fight.

 Life will be much different very soon.

Are you in the fight? Are you ready for another Veteran’s Day yet to come?

Just as a soldier’s mandate is a broad encompassing order, from the highest ranking officer to the lowest ranking soldier—“Fight and win the nations wars”.

A Christian’s mandate is Acts1:8- “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Jerusalem–community you live; Judea-the county you live; Samaria-the state you live;unto the ends of the earth-the U.S., and across the globe, everywhere.

A soldier’s mission is narrower and more concise. Follow the order of your unit deployed to seek out, kill terrorists and others whose cause is to destroy our nation.

A Christian’s Mission is outlines in Matthew 28: 18-20; MAKE DISCIPLES. This hasn’t and will not change til the Lord comes. So why is it,that God’s people who wear His uniform, are ineffective?

Christian soldiers just as the American soldier, must have effective methods–a christian soldier must be courageous as he or she moves into action. A christian soldier must be tenacious–NO RETREAT! Hold fast, stand firm, and not yield–God will equip you for the battle. And third the christian soldier must understand he is victorious. The battlefield is between God & Satan and the battle line is clearly drawn. The enemy is roaming more than ever before; therefore, our nation needs to  be on their knees. God is still on the throne. As Paul told Timothy, not to be worried over civilian world but to stay focused on God’s World. Pray. Pray. Pray fervently.

If things don’t get better, Praise The Lord because that means He’s closer to carrying out His plans. The greatest defense we have is Prayer! So don’t get so entangled or embedded in the world’s affairs that we lose the effectiveness in what the Lord wants and/or has called us to do.

2 Timothy 2: 3  ~~ “YOU THEREFORE MUST ENDURE HARDSHIP AS A GOOD SOLDIER OF JESUS CHRIST.”

2 Timothy 1:7 ~~”For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but out of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

GOD IS IN CONTROL.  GOD CAN FIX IT IF HE CHOOSES TO FIX IT.

What we do in this life will “echo” in eternity!  How will you be remembered?

Set your “standards of discipline”. Prepare to make your  statement for eternity.
