A while back a catch phrase was introduced – “What Would Jesus Do?”
That catch phrase took hold about 20 years ago.
Today, there are more jokes leveraging that catch phrase than the real meaning behind it.
The reason is that people don’t care about what Jesus thinks.
Just the other day our “favorite” girl star Miley Cyrus said the following about Christ…
PZ Note – I use the word “favorite” in a very sarcastic manner referencing little Miley.
NOW… All you Servant Warriors who are utterly offended by this, raise your sword.
Yea, I know that I was. In fact, as I was reading it my mouth hung open as I could not believe what I was reading.
Folks, our nation is totally toast with the likes of people like this gaining the spotlight.
Here is a news flash, it is going to get worse.
What is worse, there are a TON of people out there, that even though they may not like Miley Cyrus, they agree with what she has said.
AND… a lot of those people claim the title “Christian” to boot.
In fact just today I have been having a conversation with a person who has a pastor teaching utter garbage. She was showing what he was saying, the scriptures he was using and the horrible bible version he used.
So it isn’t just C.I.N.O.s out there speaking garbage it is so called pastors (hirelings) whom these people are learning it from.
This is one of the main reasons WHY I started the Servant Warrior series.
Folks, we are in a day and age where the true bible believing Christian cannot depend on their pastor being a solid bible preaching and teaching pastor. Pastors like that are far and few in between. The truth is not being preached anymore in 95% of the churches today.
SO… we have to take on that responsibility ourselves.
Hey, what a concept, feeding ourselves from the Word of God.
As strange as that might sound, it is something that many people do not do and do not know how to do.
What Would The Servant Warrior Do?
The days that we live in are pretty bad. The Word of God is mocked on the street and also mocked in the pulpit. People’s ideas of God are completely out there, as well as their ideas on what it means to be a Christian.
In this series I have been writing on the different virtues, talking about the character of The Servant Warrior as well as other aspects of living the Servant Warrior life.
Much of what I am writing about reminds me a lot of the book “Pilgrim’s Progress.”
We who are true bible believing, love the Lord with all our heart, mind and soul are on a journey, much like “Christian” was in Pilgrim’s Progress.
I call that journey being the Servant Warrior because we are living in an age where many ideas, morals and such are so skewed and distorted. It is hard to trust what we have trusted for years, just to find out that what we have been taught are lies and purely the ideas of man.
It is for this reason that I ask “What Would the Servant Warrior Do?”
See, we have two choices. Choose serving the Flesh or choose serving God.
By maintaining a “warrior code” of ethics, morals and ideals which come from God’s Word, we can navigate the traps, pitfalls, and fiery darts the enemy hurls at us or puts in our path.
The alternative is serving the flesh, which in turn is serving the devil.
We are living in an age where we have to be responsible for our own spiritual growth and those of our family.
So when we come to an obstacle, temptation, something that just does not sit right with us spiritually, we need to ask “What Would the Servant Warrior Do?”
I created a video titled “ I am The Servant Warrior.”
You can watch it here… http://youtu.be/pod351mtVK8
People today need to start being more self-sufficient in all aspects of life. Mentally, Spiritually and Physically. This idea is nothing new, it is how our great grandparents thought and is the idea our nation was founded on.
Basically, standing upon the Word of God and living your life according to His Word.
The problem is somewhere along the line we started relaxing our ideas and compromised our morals and character.
Less God, more flesh.
Less God’s Word, more TV, video games, and all the vices of the world.
Less Jesus Christ and more Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Beyoncé.
Less worship of God, more Super Bowl Sunday, Grammy Awards, Gay Parades or anything else to help us take up our time so that we are not accountable to Him.
It is because we are being so inundated with the world that when we run up against some of these things, we need to ask “What Would the Servant Warrior Do?”
Our pastors, churches and popular TV Evangelists are not telling us how to live a right and just life before the Lord.
So we need to start asking ourselves, because if we care and love God, we are The Servant Warrior.
We walk what we are finding out to be a very lonely path of righteousness. We should not be surprised at this. Christ himself told us the following…
Matthew 7:14 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
I honestly believe that God is separating the wheat from the chaff. He is wanting people to start living a holy and acceptable life again. Thing is that only a few will heed that call.
But those who do, will be The Servant Warriors.
