This is a message preached on Memorial Day weekend based on Scripture found in 2Timothy 2:1-7, entitled A Soldiers Cross. The call to be a soldier in the Lord’s army will require four areas of total commitment. There is a call of preparation as we draw close to our Commander; a call to persevere under extreme enemy resistance. There is also a call to complete allegiance and always an attitude of pure appreciation. The call to serve, whether in the Armed Forces or in the Lord’s Army requires complete dedication and is a great honor.
