Drills, Training and The Christian

This writer has worked in or around the military his entire adult life.  One thing that is common knowledge in the military is you have to drill, you have to train to fight.  Nobody with any sense believes you can not train and win when its time for war.  There is a direct parallel to what we are called to do as Christians.  The Lord told us over and over again to be always watching for His return and praying.  We, as Christian soldiers are doing the exact same thing when we watch, pray and live prepared for the Lord's return at any moment. 

The soldier has no idea if they are going to be called to war tonight, or tomorrow or the next week.  They just have to be ready for it when it happens.  The same exact thinking applies to us.  We have no idea if the Lord is going to show up for us tonight, tomorrow or next week.  We just have to be ready for it when it happens.
