I Am a Soldier. This Is My Creed.

At least one more today.
Onward, Christian soldier!


The Recovering Legalist

In honor of the home-going of a godly man and combat veteran of the European campaign of WWII, W. L. “Red” Sims, I re-post the following.

Soldier’s Creed

Hearing a soldier in the United States Military recite his particular “Solder’s Creed,” whether it be with the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, or Coast Guard, is something quite stirring.

Probably inspired by the military creeds of this world, an unknown author penned the following for soldiers in God’s Army, the Church: those bought with the blood of Christ, wearing the whole armor of God, and marching onward toward victory with the Sword of the Spirit in their hands.

The sooner we come to the realization that we are most certainly engaged in a spiritual war, the better. May we all be willing to stand unashamed…”and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:13).

Little Things With Big Impact

Okay, so you can take this opportunity to pray for Wally, but I was blown away by his little lesson that came from his … discomfort. It was convicting and comforting for me at the same time, so ENJOY!


Truth in Palmyra

We are interrupting our Follow Me!, series for this special broadcast.

That picture, up there in the featured image, is my yesterday; unfortunately, that is MY arm! I am 57 years old, and yesterday I had my first ever IV. This little bugger right here was the culprit, 2.5 mm of sheer terror:wp-15658818149857969425099092789215.jpg

That sucker is a kidney stone. I have only ever had two, and yesterday was the 2d one. All I can say is that for such a little bitty thing, they cause pain way out of proportion to their size. Praise God in that each time I have had one, it has passed with amazing speed; I hear of people taking days to pass one. They doped me up, flushed me out, and voila…there it was!

It may sound shocking that such a little thing can cause so much grief. Yet, if we read God’s Word, that…

Seven Letters to Seven Churches-Ephesus Part 6

Ephesus had a church for about half a decade (maybe more) when Jesus sent His letter through John’s revelation of Him. Remember the riot that started in Acts when Paul and company were there. The Ephesus church had toiled through many hardships for Christ.
Wally has some great thoughts here, too!


Truth in Palmyra

Revelation 2:1-7

“I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:  And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted” Revelation 2:2-3

Well, here we are, still in the second verse; in reality, we are slipping into verse three briefly also. We may poke around here for a few posts. I suspect after Ephesus we may move through the others some quicker, as there may be some thoughts common to them all. I really don’t know yet!

Here we continue with Jesus’ commendations for this church; they are many. We just have some good things going in in the Church at Ephesus. They had been around for probably 40 years at the…

VerseD: Psalm 121:1

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?
Psalm 121:1, ESV

In a world worried and complaining about all of the problems, we must remember God is in control and can help us.

And we can tell everyone else from where our hope comes.
