There’s a war going on: a battle between the forces of good and evil. The prize is you! So choose well what side you are fighting for - Daily Bible Reflections June 11,2014

Memorial of St. Barnabas, Apostle
 
BE A CHAMPION!
 
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:16
 
Modern man defines “champion” as someone who beats everyone in a contest or a battle. Hence, the title carries an air of pride and superiority. This reflects the competitive “dog-eat-dog” mentality in our world.
       As a former “warrior,” I know the word in a very deep sense. “Champion” means “combatant”; “gladiator” or “fighter”; “to fight for, defend, protect”; “field of combat”. These definitions remove the arrogant connotation of the word and instead carries a deep sense of sacrificial duty. It tells me that the champion is sent as a sacrifice to fight the strongest opponent in order to avoid a massive war.
       Sounds like John 3:16 to me. Let me rephrase that famous passage in warriorspeak: “For the Commanding General-God is so committed in His love of the subject-world, that He unleashed His only begotten Champion-Son; that whoever rallies behind Him and joins His Army will not lose life’s battle but will have eternal victory.”
       Today let’s redefine our identity: We aren’t just children of God; we’re God’s Powerful Champions! And our strategy? To obey His command and champion His greatness (Matthew 5:19). Ahoo! Ahoo! Obet Cabrillas (kpreacherobet@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: There’s a war going on: a battle between the forces of good and evil. The prize is you! So choose well what side you are fighting for.
 
Lord, You can move mountains. You are mighty to save!
 
St. Barnabas, Apostle, pray for us.
