The Soldier's Reality
Our walk through life as a Christian is a battle field. We find ourselves in a constant struggle; engaged in an un-ending war.
Peter 5:8 (New King James Version)
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
The army of Jesus is a volunteer force.
