"The Army"

"Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.." ~ Matthew 10:34 NKJV

Were you ever waiting to be picked by a team for some kind of sport during recess? In some cases, you are then picked by the team for whom you didn't want to play. How about when you got older and more competitive and it became all about winning and not just playing? Now, you are given choices in life - you can get a promotion that comes with a pay raise, but you may have to lie, cheat, or steal to get it. I remember a choice I was given when I was in sales and marketing, specifically regarding estate planning. If I were to move to the next level, I would have to convince people to turn over all their assets to the company I represented and invest it in annuities. I knew that it was not the best investment for the families, but I could have made several thousand dollars a week if I pursued it. Instead, the Holy Spirit of God convicted me and convinced me not to do it, and I left the company.

When it comes to life after death, are you going to heaven or hell? Do you know what team you are on and whose army you are in? Team Jesus or Team Satan(or the world)? This weekend at Friendship, the Holy Spirit of God will be training us on who is in the Lord's Army! Do not miss this and invite as many people as you can because we are currently recruiting new soldiers in Dover, PA.
