There is a slogan for the Marines that states, “the few, the proud, the Marines”. In those few words, you understand that many may try, but few will earn the right to call themselves a Marine. You might not believe this, but there is a similar message given to us in the Bible.
In Judges 7:4 we read, “4 But the Lord said to Gideon, “The people are still too many; bring them down to the water, and I will test them for you there. Then it will be, that of whom I say to you, ‘This one shall go with you,’ the same shall go with you; and of whomever I say to you, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ the same shall not go.”
When we make the decision to follow Jesus, we are joining a small group that is willing to be tested, yet remain faithful. Just like the Marines, the title of “Christian” is not one that we should take lightly but should wear it with honor.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
