Active Duty Soldiers

No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 2 Timothy 4:7

I served in the US Army for 6 years. When you are commissioned as an officer or sign up as an enlisted member of the Armed Forces, you basically give your life to the military. No longer was I just Becky the daughter, the friend, the cousin, the sorority sister, the sister, but I was now a part of the United States Army and they would now tell me what I could do or not do. You follow orders and adhere to discipline for a purpose and that is possible future warfare. There are consequences for not following the code of conduct and the rules.

Our battle on Earth is good versus evil. God versus Satan. Satan is after our very souls. He uses lies and deceit to accomplish his mission of destroying us. We are “active duty soldiers” of Christ and must adhere to the "code of conduct" found in our Bible to beat the devil at his own game. When you read the Word the enemy cringes because you start to understand what he and his demons are up to. Become Armed and Dangerous for Jesus today.

PRAYER: Thanks for the word of God which literally, if followed, saves souls. Help me not make excuses for being into the "world" more than I need to be. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. I personally know of two young men who are in the Armed Forces--one is in the Army, the other one in the Navy. They, and others known by members of our church, are on our prayer list, The church prints a prayer list two times a week. Everyone gets a prayer list on Wednesday night and they are available on Sunday morning.
