2 Timothy 2:3 (New King James Version)
You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
Bill helped to support and encourage the work of missionaries in Ukraine. He spoke about the work and testimony of George Markey, super-missionary in Ukraine. Markey was a tireless example of a Soldier of Jesus Christ.
The Call of the Soldier... (Jeremiah 1)
The Soldier is Called. It's the call of the soldier that keeps him moving forward to accomplish the mission. The call is a privilege. The call is for the good times and rough times. The call is precious.
It's necessary to remind yourself that God knows you, formed you, and set you apart for the task He's called you to. God has ordained you for the calling.
God's call brings us to a crisis of belief.
- God gives you the encouragement to move forward.
- God will touch you with His strength.
- God will fill our mouths with His words.
- God will continue to define the work He's called you to
- God will give eyes to see His vision.
- God will continue to clarify His purposes as you move forward.
- God allows for preparation.
- God expects you to take action.
As you walk in God's call, He will fortify you against attacks from your enemies and will walk with you.
