BATTLEFIELD AWAY FROM HOME


He cherished every letter that came from her. His deployment had started six long months ago. No end date was in sight. These were the days before emails and webcams. Those handwritten letters from his sweetheart was his only lifeline out of those trenches to back home. Her love flowed through each stroke of the pen. He read and reread every letter until the pages were stained with his sweat. He treasured them, guarding them close to his heart. Yet his whole platoon knew when a letter came, for he eagerly shared the good news, beaming with hope.


We too, dear Christians, are on a battlefield away from our true home. "Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms" (Ephesians 6:12 NIV), as the Apostle Paul reminds us. The fight is fierce and the battle long. But your dearest Savior has written to you. Do we cherish his letters? Does our sweat stain their pages? Do we guard them in our hearts?

. . .

Cling to the Lord’s promise, guarding his word deep in your heart. Cling to it like that soldier clinging to those letters from home, for in Jesus heaven is your home.

. . .

Guard God’s flawless word, for it is more precious than even the dearest love letter.
