I began this message by talking about how we were supposed to be soldiers and ambassadors. As ambassadors, you bring the presence and conditions of heaven with you in the world, and as soldiers you are to aggressively attack the works of the enemy. For fall to long, the Church has tried to beg, plead and cajole the world to become Christians. This is necessary because, for far too long, the Church has refused to confront the reality that we face a very real adversary who will do whatever he can in order to take as many of those around you with him on the way to hell.
In order to combat that, Jesus Christ created solider ambassadors – ambassadors that understood their sovereign authority and soldiers that were willing to aggressively expand the kingdom. Soldiers with the tenacity to confront the darkness around them and force the circumstances to bend to Word of God. As the Church, we should serve as beacons in this darkness, a light that draws the world to Christ by demonstrating in our lives and in our families the reality of the Kingdom of Heaven.
