Wounded Soldiers

“The Christian army is the only army that shoots and buries its wounded…. We [also] leave them to bleed to death in the field” (Freddie Gage). How true of how Christians treat their erring ones! Even the Church that’s to be a hospital for sinners often becomes a slaughter house where the saints butcher those experiencing personal failures—their fallen, faltering, or failing (cf. John 8:1-11; Luke 15:25-32; Mark 14:1-9). Are you a wounded soldier? Don’t quit fighting, for the enemy will kill you if he finds you. Remember, a wounded soldier is still a soldier. A wounded Samson brought down the Philistine kingdom. And a wounded Savior took down the gates of hell with Him. “Being wounded is not the end; it is the beginning of a new frontier in battle” (Noel Masvosvere).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
