We have started in the war for God and right.
We've enlisted in God's army for to fight.
Jesus bids us go along, with a happy shout and song.
We are fighting for the King, both day and night
Ever fighting in the name of Christ our king.
Many precious souls to Him we gladly bring
We will shout the victory ore land and sea.
We will sing His praises in all eternity.
At our post of duty, we will stand so true
Faithful till we reach the land beyond the blue.
We will hold the standard high, We will fight until we die.
We'll obey the word that God would have us do.
Throughout scripture the Apostle Paul compared the Christian walk to that of a warfare. A warfare of God's goodness against the evil powers of Satan. ( Ephesians 6: 10-16 )
Even though Satan is described as being the "price of the powers of the air" ( Ephesians 2:2 ) and in control of this worlds evil forces, I have read the book. And guess what, in the end we followers of Christ win. ( Revelation 22: 1-21 )
What about you? What are your Christian "post duties? Here's a hint. 1) Always have a prayerful spirit. ( 1 Thess 5:17 ) By this you talk to God. 2) Read your Bible.( Psalm 119:105 ) By this God talks to you. 3) Witness for God.( Acts26:17-18 ) By this you talk about God.
Yes, a soldier is always ready, for any battle that comes along. We Christian soldiers should do likewise. Are you ready to do battle with Satan ? ( 1 Cor 14:8 ) ( 2 Cor 11:3 ) ( 2 Cor 10:3-5 ) ( Proverbs 21:31 )
