A Soldier in the Army of God

Al Hughes

I am a soldier in the army of God!

The Lord Jesus Christ is my Commanding Officer!

The Bible is my code of conduct!

Faith, prayer and 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 I teach the youth, help adults, or just sit and learn, He can use me because I 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!

No one has to call me, remind me, write me, visit me, entice me, or lure me!

I am a solider!

I am not a wimp!

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 hand­outs!

I do not need to be coddled, cuddled, cradled, cared for or catered to!

I’m committed! I cannot have my feelings hurt bad enough to turn me around!

I cannot be discouraged enough to turn me aside!

I cannot lose enough to cause me to quit!

When Jesus called me into His army, I had nothing!

If I end up with nothing, I will still come out even!

I will win! My God shall supply my needs!

I am more than a conqueror!

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!

Battles cannot beat me!

Money cannot buy 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 bring me back to rule this world with Him!

I am a soldier in the army, and I'm marching, claiming victory!

I will not give up!

I will not turn around!

I am a soldier, marching Heaven bound.

Here I stand!


Guess what?

If you've accepted Jesus as your Savior, you are already enlisted!

QUESTION IS, are you on:

Active Duty: Serving the Lord faithfully, daily and on duty 24-7?

Reserve Status: serving only when called upon, or twice a year at Christmas and Easter?

Guard Status. Backing up the Active Duty grou­p? Or a you

AWOL: Absent Without the Lord!?

Think about it!
