Get to the Battlefield

Just imagine what would have happened to Israel if there had been no David. David was a man of action. Goliath's disrespect for God angered him. He didn't go out to fight because he thought he was tough. He went out because his God had been insulted, and he knew his God was able.

Too many think being Christian is about sitting in a pew, listening to a sermon. It isn't. It is about being David in a world full of Goliaths. We take the fight to them, because our God is worthy. H...e deserves our allegiance. He deserves their respect.

I take my sword and go to the nearby pit of hell as often as I can. No, I'm not a David, but I surely fight like one. No demon gets to slaughter God's creation on my watch without being rebuked. I won't let the children die without trying to save them, either.

What about you? If pew warming is all you want to do, understand that the time will come when the LORD is going to want to know why you felt no need to show up at the battlefield. He will ask you why you failed to understand His word regarding caring for the helpless, the fatherless. That's going to be much more intense than fighting for the children's lives -- way more.

Ask the LORD tonight to reveal the truth of this to you. Repent. Get off your pew, and get out to the field. Children are dying. What do you really have to do that could be more important?

Defend the poor and fatherless. Do justice to the afflicted and needy. Psa 82:3
