Stories are told about the person that goes farther than they were expected to. In the military, it usually means someone did something that saved lives. I read scripture like a soldier, most times, and I see the Lord calling the disciples to enlist with Him. He trains them to live like him and tells them their mission will be recruiting other disciples.  Three disciples are invited to come closer, to see Jesus without his uniform. The transfiguration spoken of in Matthew 17:1-9. It wasn’t revealed to others until later. It was just for them. And the privileged three, James, John, and Peter, went on to save many lives. The words that they were inspired by God to write, were written with a vantage point that few have ever seen.

I hear people tell stories from a pilots perspective or a medic’s perspective. I want to be one of the people that go beyond the call of duty. I want to be picked to come close and change my perspective. I know it will save lives just as these great soldiers of Christ’s vantage point, has saved mine.

Memorial Day—It’s for the soldier in Christ as well. For the one who wakes up on alert, pours out tears, declares the laws of God against the enemy. The one who lives by word…….and have died by it.

For those who don’t know what I’m talking about, It’s because you don’t know what I’m talking about. I pray one day you will.

Love ya
