Vajta Conference Session Four: Bill Goodrich

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.

The soldier's orders

  • they're personal
  • God gives us orders tailored to us

The soldier's enemy

  • we're not beyond temptation
  • we need to continue in our training
  • the enemy has many cunning tactics

The soldier's warfare

  • the soldier must be aware of and know how to use his weapons
  • God takes everything out of us to make us into something else
  • He provides us with armor
  • the warrior must have a heart to go into battle

The soldier's duty

  • to stand
  • take up your armor
