My sons and daughters, each of you have been called into the service of the army. I call you my generals for you have been trained and equipped to lead and teach, those who follow you into the ranks. My generals do not wear medals upon their chests, for they have a higher purpose to fulfil, they will attend to every need of the babies being birthed anew into the kingdom.
As my generals you will hold to your chest these little ones of the faith, and they will be sick on you, they will cry a lot and you will comfort them, they will scream for food and you will feed them, your time will not be your own, you will get tired, you will try to sleep and they will keep you up all night, you will take them out and watch as others tell you how awesome they are.
You my generals are called to this high calling for you will stand up for every need of the children, you will hold them through the night hours, you will watch them step out in boldness, because you taught them about ME.
(NIV) Ephesians 4: 1-8b
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says:
“When he ascended on high,
he took many captives
and gave gifts to his people.”
(NIV) 1 Peter 2: 1-3
Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
