“Let us not glide through this world and then slip quietly into heaven, without having blown the trumpet loud and long for our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Let us see to it that the devil will hold a thanksgiving service in hell, when he gets the news of our departure from the field of battle.” ~C. T. Studd

It’s messy, this war. The shrapnel of flesh and bone is nowhere to be found; still the death toll rises. Dark and light come to blows in a fiery clash and the battlefield rattles beneath our boots. The arms we bear—love, mercy, grace—have brought rebels to ruin and taken down Kings.
Today, you’ve been chosen to meet with the Almighty.
Today, you’ve been anointed to war like David and preach like Paul.
Today, you’ve been given victory over the perimeters of heaven.
Take up your arms:
- Examination & Prayer. Read 2 Corinthians 13:5.
- Forgiveness & Cleansing. Read 1 John 1:9.
- An Undivided Heart. Read I Chronicles 28:9.
- The Word. Read Proverbs 4:13.
- Fellowship. Read Hebrews 10:25.
- The Crown. Read 1 Corinthians 9: 24-25.
Can you feel the war that wages around you? What weapons have you chosen?
We bear arms of Love that have brought rebels to ruin and taken down Kings. War on, beloved. #LiveSticky
