Today our Topic today is – Spiritual Soldier
Scripture: 2 Timothy 2nd chapter 4th -6th verse NIV
4 No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. 5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.
THOUGHT: The phrase “No man that wareth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life” is from the Bible verse 2 Timothy 2:4-6. It means that those who are engaged in warfare should not be distracted by the affairs of this life so that they may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. (Reference: Bing Chat)
1 John 2nd Chapter 15th-17th verse.
15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
THOUGHT: The phrase “Love not the world neither the things in the world” is from the Bible verse 1 John 2:15-17. It means that we should not love the world or the things in the world because if anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh [the sin nature] and the desires of the eyes [which relates to the warped perspective we sometimes have] and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.
