Band of Brothers
The LORD is with you, mighty warrior
we do here echoes in eternity”
designed to have a lasting impact on eternity. Everyone will
die, but few people will ever truly live. To live like a
to live with honor before God and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live with dedication to a cause,
to live with compassion for others, is to live in a way that
will echo in eternity.

This week I had the privilege of spending a great
deal of time with a seasoned, godly older man who
has walked with God for sixty years. Observing this
old war-horse of the faith, and reflecting back on
others of his stripe, two traits seem to
characterize their lives:
INTIMACY – I notice that they have cultivated the
practice of moment-by-moment communion with Christ,
when their minds are free from other obligations and
demands. It is apparent that they have learned to
bring Jesus into the little details of their lives.
They seem in touch. The tone I pick up is one of
sensitivity to His prompting, sensitivity to sin,
dependency upon Him in the littlest of things,
humility, gentleness, perhaps even brokenness. There
is not the slightest air of superiority or
"I am the vine itself, you are the branches. It is
the man who shares my life and whose life I share
who proves fruitful. For the plain fact is that
apart from Me you can do nothing." (John 15:5 –
IMMEDIACY – It seems that they are forever, and
everlastingly "at it." Their antennas are up, aware,
utilizing every opportunity to lovingly and
graciously share the love of Christ with those who
come into their orbit. Reflective indeed of Paul's
"So, naturally, we proclaim Christ! We warn everyone
we meet, (evangelism) and we teach everyone we can,
all that we know about Him, (discipleship) so that,
if possible, we may bring every man up to his full
maturity in Christ Jesus. This is what I am working
at all the time, with all the strength that God
gives me." (Colossians 1:28, 29 – Phillips)
Perhaps their motto is: "if not you – who? If not
now – When?"
In this sense of immediacy, there is no hint of
pushiness or being overbearing. Notice the
guidelines Paul gives, derived from Colossians 4:5,
6; 2 Timothy 2:24-26:
Wise. Clever and skilled.
Utilizing every opportunity. Immediacy.
Gracious: Gentle, meek, humble, mild. Patient,
enduring evil or ill-will.
Salty: Pointed; not insipid; "an edge of liveliness"
Correcting: Chastening, educating, teaching and
Not quarrelsome: Not disputing or striving.
SUGGESTION: Can you take a moment and ask God,
"Lord, if I am not walking intimately with you, why?
And if I am lack a sense of immediacy in getting the
Gospel to others, why?

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
