I was interviewed by a radio station in Wales. It gave me an opportunity to discuss being a Chrstian in the military.

To the Glory of God

Years ago, I was interviewed for a radio station in Wales. The name of the program was Soldier, Sailor, Tinker, Tailor and the premise of the program is that the host would interview people from all walks of life regarding their faith in Jesus Christ. His idea was to communicate the idea that Christians come from all manner of occupations. The Christian message was not just for certain economic or societal castes.

Jesus Christ came to redeem anyone that would accept His free gift of salvation. Likewise, as we experience salvation and enter into relationship with Christ we become responsible to share that gospel in our realms of influence. No one is exempt. But, it is important that we be led by the Spirit of God and not try to share the gospel in our own wisdom.

If you are a lawyer, then practice law to the glory of God. If you are a truck driver, drive that truck to the glory of God. If you are a waitress, wait those tables to the glory of God. You aren’t a laywer, truck driver or waitress who just ‘happens’ to be a Christian. You are a Christian who just ‘happens’ to be a lawyer, truck driver, waitress…or whatever the Lords calling is upon your life.
