In this Salvation Army call to arms, we are reminded the word Salvationist is not a noun. It’s a verb. It describes what we do.
An Active Faith
The whole of Scripture emphasises an active faith.
At first glance, Paul’s words seem right up The Salvation Army’s street! After all, we were born to fight. But here, the phrase “fight the good fight of faith” is not a military metaphor. It’s an athletics metaphor.
Paul’s Active Verbs
Paul tells Timothy to shun evil things. He encourages us to follow hard after godly character. He says we must take hold of the eternal life that Jesus has already given and promised us.
A Salvation Army Call to Arms
This Salvation Army call to arms reminds us the life of a Salvationist is a call to action. And it is strengthened by doing something. You know what you believe. That faith must lead to action.
