DCLM DAILY MANNA 16 JANUARY 2019 MESSAGE: Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919) is generally acknowledged to be one of the strongest and most vigorous president in the United States’ history. His brave and irrepressible disposition is quite evidenced in his following notable quote: “Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they lie in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” A brave spirit like this if found in any army could be the determinant of victory, if God is in it.
This, then, was the privilege of David as God prepared him to be king over all Israel. Great men came over to him and held a meeting with him to make his kingdom strong. The list is long but they are all referred to as valiant men in our text. They were tough and no seekers of pleasure. They preferred rejection and hardship of life to living under the oppressive hands of King Saul. They fought alongside David until he was made king and the kingdom was established under him.
DCLM Daily Manna 16 January 2019 – Valiant Soldiers of Christ
True Christians are not only followers but also soldiers of Christ. We are to be brave and steadfast in our faith and service to the Lord. A steadfast Christian soldier is never a deserter. He endures hardness and he is never a lover of the world or the attraction it holds. He loves the Lord.
As David’s great men individually distinguished themselves in battle, and in their own right qualified to be included in the list of great men by their deeds of bravery, so must we fight the good fight of faith and overcome sin, Satan and self to stand out as soldiers of Christ.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: There is a divine roll call; we must strive to enter in.
