Taking an active role in God’s army
July 15, 2011
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7
Years ago in Scotland, a man by the name of Robert Burns was the commander of a particular troop of Scottish soldiers. Well, one day, Burns fell in battle in the heat of the conflict. So the second-in-command took out his sword and literally cut out the heart of Commander Burns!
As he held up this bleeding heart before all the troops, he cried out, “Here is the heart of Robert Burns! Who will follow after?” And on that day, that army rallied back after the loss and won their victory over the enemy.
Our great Lord, upon the cross of Calvary, held out his heart and said, “Here is the heart of God! Who will follow after?” And yet, so many Christians are content to simply sit on the sidelines and watch others fight the battle when God is calling them to get up and wage war!
Are you an active soldier in God’s army? Or do you just watch while others are warring? Every believer in Christ is called to play an active role in God’s Kingdom work. So if you’re sitting on the sidelines, God is calling you to get up and fight the good fight of the Christian faith!
GOD CALLS ALL BELIEVERS TO AN ACTIVE ROLE IN HIS PURPOSES. SO GET UP AND FIGHT THE BATTLE HE HAS FOR YOU!
