“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are My friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know His master’s business. (John 15:13-15a)
I Am A Soldier in the army of my God. My Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer. The Holy Scripture is my code of conduct. Faith, Prayer, and the Word are my Weapons of Warfare. I have been TAUGHT by the Holy Spirit, TRAINED by Experience, TRIED by Adversity and TESTED by Fire.
A volunteer in this army I am, and I am enlisted for eternity. I will not get out, sell out, be talked out or pushed out. Faithful, reliable, capable and dependable I am. When my God needs me, there I am. I am A Soldier. I am not a baby. I do not need to be pampered, petted, primed up, pumped up, picked up, or pepped up.
I Am A Soldier. I am not a wimp. I am in place, saluting my King, obeying His orders, praising His name and building His kingdom! No one has to send me flowers, gifts, food, cards, or candy, or give me handouts. I do not need to be cuddled, cradled, cared for, or catered to. Committed I am.
I Am A Soldier! I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around. I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside. I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit. When Jesus called me into His army, I had nothing. If I end up with nothing, I will still come out ahead. I win. My God has and will continue to supply all of my need.
I Am A Soldier! More than a conqueror I am. I will always triumph. I can do all things through Christ. The devil cannot defeat me. People cannot disillusion me. Weather cannot weary me. Sickness cannot stop me. Battles cannot beat me. Money cannot buy me. Governments cannot silence me, and hell cannot handle me.
I Am A Soldier! Even death cannot destroy me. For when my Commander calls me from His battlefield, He will promote me and then allow me to rule with Him. A soldier I am in the army of the LORD, and I’m marching claiming victory. I will not give up. I will not turn around.
A soldier I am, and Heaven bound I am. Here I Stand! Will you stand with me as a good soldier of Jesus Christ?
