Like Jesus, we are blessed with the gift of life. As such our journey is filled with opportunities to follow Him. Sometimes this means we will “share in His sufferings.” Check out Hebrews 5:17.
Jesus is our leader in the fight that IS life. He is our example and our companion as well. There is nothing we will ever face that He has not faced and conquered. But not only do we follow Him, we will also reign with Him (2 Timothy 2:12). This is where crowns won fit in – as we engage in the battle.
What are the reasons behind WHY we choose to fight the fight of faith. We don’t do what we do to get something from God. When we humble our souls and give ourselves to our Father and His Kingdom, we are included in the great rewards of His glory.
Let’s talk about why this is motivating!
Check out Revelation 19: “Then I saw Heaven open wide—and oh! a white horse and its Rider. The Rider, named Faithful and True, judges and makes war in pure righteousness. His eyes are a blaze of fire, on his head many crowns. He has a Name inscribed that’s known only to himself. He is dressed in a robe soaked with blood, and he is addressed as “Word of God.” The armies of Heaven, mounted on white horses and dressed in dazzling white linen, follow him.”
Today we will talk a little about the battle – and next time we will more fully engage the concept of WHY we fight.
Enjoy – warrior friend!
