This means WAR

IFD14-Final_2015This post was inspired from my son Alexx’s blog Marching As To War and i quote,

“We’re coming into a time in which one needs to be able to get knee deep in scum without flinching at the knife in their ribs, they need to show no fear in their eye with a gun down their throat and still be able to preach through the bullets.”

My son’s whole post set me on fire but especially those few words. This made me ask a few questions to myself,  perhaps you can ask yourself, fellow Christian, these same questions:

Are you ready to live for Christ?

Are you ready to die for Him?

Do they (those around you) know you are a Christian?

Do they know because you are like Christ in the way you live?

If threatened because of your faith would you hold your ground?

Are you willing to let Jesus, His characteristics, shine through you to the point that others notice, your not like those of this world?


One more question came to my mind and i asked myself,

What am i wearing?

I am trying to be clothed in His righteousness rather than thick headed self righteousness. He>i<Him! (John 3:30).

I hope the few lines from my son’s blog post, let alone his whole post Marching As To War,  is as inspiring to you as it is to me.

You may also want to visit Steve Simm’s blog. His post re:  Fighting from a fox hole  goes along with this same calling from The Holy Spirit to get into this Spiritual battle we are in when we are in Christ.
