Let’s start by looking at the Centurion Soldier in Matthew 8:5-8. “When Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him asking for help. ‘ Lord,’ he said my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly. Jesus said to him, Shall I come and heal him?’ The centurion replied, Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed.”
A Soldier knows how to take orders under authority. In Matthew 8:10 Jesus told the centurion that he had the greatest faith that He had ever saw.
We are in a fight right now, it’s time to act like it. 1 Timothy 6:11-12 tells us, “But you, man of God, flee from this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith.
Don’t get sidetracked by the world, we have orders from the commander in chief -God. There is grace that comes from being in God’s Army.
Our vote doesn’t count in God’s Army. Pay attention, follow orders and watch for good fruit coming your way.
2 Timothy 2:5-7 like athletes, “If anyone competes in athletics, he isn’t crowned unless he has competed by the rules.
There’s a saying about” kicking over the sacred cow, It’s Satan’s lie that says “I don’t have to that because, I’m under the blood of Jesus. I believe it’s one of the biggest lies of today.
Follow the Commander and Chief (God), and you will see grace and peace
No Strife and Quarreling. 2:Timothy 2: 14-16, “Remind them of these things, charging them in the sight of the Lord, that they don’t argue about words, to no profit, to the subverting of those who hear.” Basically God is telling us don’t get in stupid fights about words,
In a disagreement we either follow God or we follow Satan. 2 Timothy 2:15, “Give diligence to present yourself approved by God, a workman who doesn’t need to be ashamed, properly handling the Word of Truth. If I am wrong I want God to show, me I’m wrong. And I pray He will do the same for others.
If we are in God’s Army, if doesn’t matter what social media, the news stations do to try and suck you into their agenda’s or opinions. They what us to be involved in their stupid fights.
God’s Plan For You As Soldiers For Christ
Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of pure heart. Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.2 Timothy 2:22-26
