“Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.”
2 Timothy 2:3,4 KJV
H. Ernest Nichol wrote “The Victorious Army”. “We’ve enlisted in the cause victorious Of the everlasting Lord; We are marching in the ranks all glorious, Resplendent with the shield and sword. Christ is our captain, Christ our might, So we fight, seeking right; Christ is leading us to light In the all victorious army.”
We are either serving Jesus or we are serving satan. There is no middle ground. Every one of us has to choose if we serve Jesus or if we will serve satan. After all that our precious Saviour has done for us, He deserves to be the One we choose to serve. We read in the Bible.
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15).
Sundar Singh wrote one of my favorite hymns “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus”. Have you decided to follow Jesus? If not, you are hurting Him and breaking His heart. If you’re not serving Jesus, I urge you to shut off the television, get out of your comfort zone and serve the One Who died for your sins.
