I am a Soldier

be strong

Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses,

the same commit thou to faithful men,

who shall be able to teach others also.

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 2:1-4

I AM A SOLDIER 

(Soldiers in the Army of The Lord)

I am a soldier in the army of my God.

The Lord Jesus is my Commanding Officer.

The Holy Bible 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.

I am a volunteer in this Army and I am enlisted for Eternity.

I will either retire in this Army at the rapture or die in this army.

But I will not

GET OUT

SELL OUT

BE TALKED OUT

OR PUSHED OUT! 

I am Faithful, Reliable, Capable, and Dependable.

If my God needs me, I am there.

If He needs me in Sunday School to teach children, work with youth, help adults or just sit and learn,

He can use me because I am there.

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!

Bible pledge

I am not a whimp.

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, candy or give me a handout.

I do not need to be

Cuddled

Cradled

Cared

for or

Catered to.

I am Committed!

I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn around.

I cannot be discouraged enough to turn aside.

I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit.

When Jesus called me into this Army, I had nothing!

If I end up with nothing I will still come out ahead.

I will win!

My God has and will continue to supply all of my needs.

I am more than a conqueror.Christian flag

I will always triumph.

I can do all things through Christ!

Devils cannot defeat me.

People cannot disillusion me.

Weather cannot weary me.

Sickness cannot stop 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 this battlefield,

He will promote me to Captain and then allow me to rule with Him.

I am a Soldier in the Army of my GOD

and I am marching, claiming victory!

I will not give up.

I will not turn around.

I am a Soldier marching Heaven Bound!

Here I stand, will you stand with me?  Guess what?  If you’ve accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and followed the Lord in believer’s baptism, you’ve enlisted!

Are you pulling your weight?  Or allowing the enemy to gain territory?

**This was presented by a Pastor at the Executive Meeting of the Carolina Baptist Association.  What a challenge!**
