Soldiers of the Cross

Hated by many, not favored by all Nevertheless, we must answer the call Standing on the front lines, weary and worn Battle scars evident, from a world full of scorn With the belt of truth, buckled at our waist Our message of love and His amazing grace Our breastplate of righteousness, strapped firmly in place Harsh judgment from a world, we must finish the race Our feet walking in the gospel of peace Chosen by God, we will not see defeat With the shield of faith, never to fear Attacks of the enemy, our God is near The helmet of salvation, covers our head The sword of the spirit, bringing life to the dead In the face of persecution, His kingdom to come With God by our side, We will not stand alone Opening up our blinded eyes to see The wonder and awe of His majesty As the servant of Elisha, saw chariots of fire Ready for battle, the stakes could not be higher Many precious souls are on the line As prophecy fulfills its many signs Satan is loose and seems to be winning We must recruit the dying to the living Many are chosen but few answer the call Few, we may stand but we are never to fall Strong and courageous, in Christ we stand Spreading the gospel across our great land The harvest is plentiful while laborers are few Where is the church? Has Satan silenced them too Wake up church from your slumber, there is no time to fear The clock is ticking, time is at hand, the end is near Called to the front lines, never to waver To battle for souls on behalf of our Savior Jesus as our captain, we will not suffer loss We are, The Army of God, Soldiers of the Cross Written by- Donetta Harless July 10, 2016

It is unfortunate that many Christians have forgotten the intent of sacrifice in their daily lives for others, to win them for Christ. I know that I for one have certainly not been the best I could be.

We all fall short. Life has become so demanding and hectic it is pushing God away. I am learning to shut the world out. We never grow too old to learn. I for one, learn a new lesson everyday. And I thank God for that..
