Bible Reference: 

Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gadhi:
My grandfather was not a pacifist; but he wanted to reduce the violence to a bare minimum.

Film "Good Kill", about American pilots flying drones over Afghanistan, sickened by the slaughter.

Psalm 70 is a cry for help in distress: but, in our lives, it's tempting to imagine that we don't need God.  But God is there to celebrate the good times, as well as rescue us in the bad ones.  Also, we need to train in peacetime, to be ready in wartime.

"Fruitfulness On The Frontline" talks about "Moulding Culture".  JB Phillips translated Romans 12.2 as "Don't let the world around you squeeze you into its own mould."

How can we be alert, ready for Christ?  How can we takes steps to mould our lives with the culture of the Kingdom, rather than those of the world?

 

If we come to God often, in the sunshine,
then, in our darkest night, our feet will find that familiar path
to His loving embrace.
