"The Christian Soldier" is a side by side reference of military experiences and history to that of a Christian Soldier. We often refer ourselves to being a Soldier in God's Army but not everyone has military experience. This book was inspired by an actual personal experience that left me wondering if we were in a warzone and this occurred how many people would be sent to the brig (military prison).
The Apostle Paul gives several spiritual scriptures and references on our Christian walk with the walk of one of a soldier. Whether you were in the military or not, this book helps to reflect and understand not only these scriptures better, but also helps us to reflect on our walk with Christ as a Christian Soldier.
The greatest tool a successful Marine has is discipline. "Discipline is Instant and Willing Obedience to Orders, Respect for Authority, Self-Reliance and Teamwork" we learned this saying in 1st Phase in Marine Bootcamp. Discipline is a multi-definition word usage. It takes discipline to wake up at 0400 in the morning to run and exercise but it is needed to stay in shape in the Marine Corps. It is just as necessary to wake up early for your devotional time with God every day to stay in Spiritual shape as a Christian. This is just one example we can compare as a soldier to our walk with Christ.
The Comparison of the military soldier to a Christian Soldier is an insightful and amazing way to compare our walk with Christ. Whether you are a strong Christian and want to challenge your walk to a greater level or a new born again Christian to examine where you would like to begin your walk and how to live a successful Christian Life, this book fits every spiritual level.
