FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL

 

OUR THEME FOR 2014

(Part 58)

 

WE ARE WARRIORS - 2

 

November 22, 2014

Today’s reading:  Psalm 144:1-10

 

 

We are warriors. As God’s warriors, God Himself provides for our offense and our defense. For offense, God trains us for war. God “trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war” (v.1b). God provides our defense. God Himself is “my safeguard and my fortress, my stronghold, my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge” (v.2a). Together, God it is “who subdues peoples under me.” (v.2b).

 

We are in spiritual war. This is God’s war, and we are His armies. As such, we call upon heaven and its hosts to help us. Again, our help is in offense and defense. For offense: “Lord, incline your heavens and come down; touch the mountains and make them smoke. Flash forth lightning and scatter my foes; shoot your arrows and rout them.” (v.5-6). For our defense: “Reach out your hand from on high; deliver me from the many waters; rescue me from the hands of foreign foes.” (v.7).

 

As God’s warriors we are assured of victory and deliverance. In offense: “You give victory to kings” (v.10a). In defense: “you delivered David your servant from the menacing sword” (v.10b).

 

Let the warriors march on, with a sword in their hands and a song in their mouths. “O God, a new song I will sing to you” (v.9a). We march with triumphant fortitude. The war is God’s, the victory is God’s.

WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO

Through all of our 29 years, we have spoken much of our vision and mission, who we are, what we are called to do. We know that we are an evangelistic and missionary community. This has been true from the very beginning and has never changed. We do our work within the context of family renewal. That is one distinct factor that distinguishes us from other renewal movements.

Books and Magazines

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. The Eucharist is the greatest gift God gives to His people. The Eucharist is our path to holiness and Christian perfection. The Eucharist is crucial to our work of the New Evangelization. We must have greater understanding and appreciation of the Eucharist, so that we can go forth and truly be effective witnesses to salvation in Jesus.

Servant leadership is crucial to our work of building up community and of doing a massive work of evangelization. Unfortunately, many who are leaders in our Church today may not have the heart of a servant. But Jesus, our Lord and Master, came not to be served but to serve. He is our main model.
