“Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who has self-control than one who takes a city” (Proverbs 16:32) - Daily Bible Reflections July 11,2015

THE REAL FIGHTER
 
“And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.” – Matthew 10:28
 
       I was a fighter in my younger days. I’ve been part of many fights: boxing matches, rumbles and riots.
       That makes me tough, right? Wrong!
       Because none of those fights changed my life for the better.
       The more my body was battered with bruises and wounds, the more hateful, rebellious and evil I became.
       That’s why the adage, “No one wins in a war,” is true.
       Matthew 10:28 was right. “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.”
       So I surrendered to Him Who conquered my soul. And the good news is, by God’s grace, I’m now victorious. God moved me from a life of violence to a life of grace.
       Now, I fight the real battle — of winning souls back to the love, grace and mercy of God.
       Today, I am His fighter.
       Wanna join the team?
       Ahoo! Ahoo! Obet Cabrillas (kpreacherobet@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: “Better a patient man than a warrior, a man who has self-control than one who takes a city” (Proverbs 16:32).
 
O Lord, may I live out what I professed when I had my confirmation — that I be a soldier of God who will win back souls for His kingdom.
 
St. Benedict, abbot, pray for us.
