Head: a warrior still

Saturday, October 27, 2018
    [Jesus:] “This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”
    —John 15:8 (NIV)
    [As from David:] Did not I, through faith, conquer kingdoms, apply justice, obtain promises, stop the mouths of lions, put out raging fires, escape the edge of the sword, win strength out of weakness, become valiant in war, and put foreign armies to flight?
    Was I not a man of faith and a man of action in one skin? Why are the faithful so afraid of deeds, for fear they should fall into ‘justification by works’? And why is Thy Church so uncomfortable with its men of action? And why do men of spirit so often have to work apart from, and even against it? Are there no longer kingdoms to be conquered, injustice to be destroyed, promises to be obtained?
    The Son of David is a warrior still. Must He tread the winepress alone?
    ... David Head, Shout for Joy, New York: MacMillan Co., 1962, p. 58 (see the book)
    See also John 15:8; Isa. 63:1-5; Matt.26:31; Mark 14:50; Heb. 11:32-34
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, show me the work that I must do for Your glory.
