For all you men out there!

This is the creed I wrote (more like adapted from the Army’s Airborne Creed) for our church. If I ask the question, Who Am I?, I could answer Heirborn!┬áThere is great joy and excitement to be a part of something that is living and active. This is the start of the ministry to men at our church. We need God!

I AM HEIRBORN!

I jump by Faith into the fight. I have chosen to do it, knowing well the hazards of my choice.

I serve a Divine Creator who goes before me and follows behind me. It is my pledge to uphold His honor and prestige in all that I am and all I do.

I am an elite trooper; a Praying trooper, a Worshipping trooper, a Word-wielding trooper. I blaze the way to far-flung goals, all behind, before, and above the foe’s front line.

I know that the fight will last until the return of Christ, my Captain. Therefore, I keep mind and body always fit to do my part in any HEIRBORN task. I fight hard and excel in every art and artifice of war.

I never fail a fellow trooper. I cherish as a sacred trust the lives of brothers with whom I serve. Leaders have my fullest loyalty, and those I lead will never find me lacking.

In peace, I do not shrink the dullest of duty nor protest the toughest training. My weapons and equipment are always combat ready.

In battle, I fear no foe’s ability, nor underestimate his prowess, power and guile. I fight him with Prayer, Worship and the Word of God.

I belong to a proud and glorious team; the HEIRBORN, Central Church, and the global Church. I am its chosen vessel to fight where others may not or cannot go, to serve them well until the final victory.

In peace and war I never fail. Anywhere, anytime, in anything,

I AM HEIRBORN!

 

The Word – Heirborn

The Worth – Because of Christ, I have an inheritance awaiting me in heaven. I also have the power of God in me right now. This is so I can live like the man I was created to be!

The Work – Because God’s power resides in me, I have a duty. I should not go to heaven by myself! My world can be influenced for God because of God in me. Because I am Heirborn, God can flow through me to win my world!

All it took was a cross.

Who Am I? That question will likely be repeated many times this year. I will try to answer that question with my posting. This blog, in essence, is my journal.

journal

As I discover my identity in Christ, I will write in my journal (this blog).

You, as the reader, will hopefully be challenged, enlightened, or whatever God gives you, when you read each post. I also want to encourage you to comment. There might be something you write about that another reader might be thinking.

Above all, it is my hope and prayer that this post will bring glory to God. Sure, I like when people “like”, comment, or even follow me but all of that is icing on the cake.

God gets all the praise and honor. After all, He did say that if “I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me,” John 12:32


Remember 2017? My posts all had the same format.

The Word. The Worth. The Work.

This structure helped me to explain my thoughts and hopefully, communicate them clearly. I will use the same organization for the Who Am I? posts.


The Word – Colossians 2:13-15

hammer and nails

The Worth – I am alive because of Christ and all it took was the cross.

I was dead in sins. There was no life because of my sinful nature.

But God made me alive! He forgave my sins! Even more, he took the power away from my enemy and nailed it to that cross!!! It is finished!!!

The Work – Who Am I? I am alive! I know that based on what I read in Colossians.

So now, because I am alive, I can start living. No more dead man walking stuff.

I guess this means Jesus nailed it!
