The ammunition you need for life as a Christian in the military.
Stand and be counted
Life in the military is demanding.
The culture is all encompassing.
You will face times of danger and conflict.
You also face the challenge of:
Mobility: posting and moving around a lot
Deployment: being away from home on operations or exercises; or just on training courses
Living in Close quarterswith people: it is very intense living with the people you work with; and also eating and doing sport and recreation together.
FOCUS Military provides the ammunition you need for life as a Christian in the military.
Don’t just make it through;
but make a difference.
For the Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Stand and be Counted
Do not be afraid to stand and be counted as one of God’s people; as a follower of Jesus Christ.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid;
do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God
will be with you wherever you go.”
Be natural about it.
It is part of who you are.
You don’t need to say it in the first conversation.
It can come up at any time.
What did you do on the weekend?
Ie imagine saying this: “I went to a BBQ on Saturday night; went to church on Sunday; a normal weekend really!”
Develop the confidence to say:
“I am going to bible study”.
“Well I am a Christian; so my view on that is……”
It’s like jumping it the surf at the beginning of summer.
The water is always cold; but once you are in it is ok!
