Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Warrior and Worker"
"Those who built on the wall, and those who carried burdens, loaded themselves so that with one hand they worked at construction, and with the other held a weapon."
Our Breakfast this morning shows us a picture of the Warrior's Adventure!
We are both a Warrior and a Worker; We Fight and We Build!
Here is Nehemiah and his fellow Warriors, building with one hand and holding a sword with the other hand.
The Warrior builds the Kingdom of God, First in their life, then in their family, then in their church community and the world - but our Sword, the Word of God, must always be in our hand and at our side.
Building and Fighting is the Warrior's Adventure. This is what the "Normal Christian Life" is meant to be. This is how our Commander and King Lived among us as our Model - and how He expects us to Live as well; as a Warrior and a Worker!
Without our Sword of God's Word we will spend our life building man's work of religion, fighting with futility, and have ultimate defeat.
This is why we have "The Warriors Creed,"
"This is my Bible. There are many like it, but this One is mine. It is my life.
I must master it as I must master my life. Without my Bible I am useless.
I must fire my Bible true, using the right verse for each lie of the enemy. I must shoot straighter than the devil and his crowd. I must shoot them before they shoot me. I will.
My Bible and I know that what counts in this war is not the number of verses we fire, the noise we make, or emotion we show. We know it is the hits that count. We will hit the target of the lie.
My Bible is ALIVE. It is the Living Word of God, even as I am alive, because It is my life. Thus, I will learn It as a brother. I will learn It's weaknesses - It has NONE, It's strengths, It's doctrines, standards of conduct, and arsenal of weapons. I will keep my Bible clean and ready, even as I will keep myself clean spiritually and ready physically. My Bible and I shall become part of each other.
Before God I swear this creed. My Bible and I are the defenders of our Country Heaven. We are the Masters of our enemy the devil. We are joined to Jesus, the Savior of my life.
So be it, because victory IS Heaven's and there is no enemy that can stand before my Bible and I.
Warrior at your side
