Peter Holdford, a friend of mine for over 10 years, preached recently at Fresh Hope Armidale. His topic was The Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, based around Paul’s image of the soldier in Ephesians 6. I have never known someone as faithful in the daily reading of Scripture as Peter and when he speaks on the topic I listen. In his message he read a creed he wrote based on an actual US Marine Corp creed featured in the Stanley Kubrick movie Full Metal Jacket.
It is my prayer that these simple words would be a mantra for you, inspire you to hold God’s Word close and help you to look forward to when we shall know shalom.
