Quote for Today
“The church is to declare the grace and power of God to the heavens, where the gates of hell cannot prevail against it! Paul is not describing a symbol; he is describing what God expects to see when His people are viewed – clothed and standing, ready for battle.
It is time to marshal the troops; it is time to fall into ranks and be determined to win. When one sings the old song, “Onward Christian Soldiers, marching out to war, with the cross of Jesus going on before,” he or she is not speaking about a symbol but an occupation. We need to be that kind of Christian soldier, fighting back against the field of moral and spiritual degradation that rises against all that we believe. Instead, the church acquiesces, sleeping with the enemy, hoping all will turn out well”
– C.R. Oliver
