Eph 6:10-18 (10)
If I were to visualize the people of God in armor as prepared for battle the image of one man would quickly come to my mind. This man has blazed a trail wherever he has served. He has stood as solid as the Rock of Gibraltar in his opposition to individuals who have tried to gain personal advantage at the risk of causing damage to the local congregation. While others have folded in personal compromise he has stood in the battle unflinching in his faithfulness. He has served local congregations well as pastor but he has also served the Church of God (Holiness) well as a leader. He has given and given and given to the work of God but has never given in to the pressures of those who wanted to espouse another way. If I was the Quarterback on a football team I would want him to be my Center. He will still be standing in the battle when the field is carpeted with the bodies of self-styled leaders. He is dependable. He formidable. He is solid in his faith. Silas MeGehee took Paul seriously when he said, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” Silas is a warrior of the cross.
