Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you…
Members of the United States military have one commission to uphold: to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.
No matter the branch of service – Air Force, Navy, Army, Marines or Coast Guard – the commission is the same. No matter the generation, training or assignment, the Enlistment Oath connects every service person who has ever worn the military uniform.
Even when a Marine argues his superiority over an Army soldier – one commission. Whether a soldier engaged in conflict or did not – one commission. Regardless if a service person retired as a four-star general or was discharged as a private – one commission.
As blood-bought, Bible-believing followers of Christ, we have one simple commission: go! God has commanded us to go into all the world and preach the Good News to every creature. When Jesus redeemed us, we were drafted into the army of the Living God. We are united under His banner and have received our marching orders.
When His truth is ignited in the depths of our souls, we are compelled to share the message of the gospel with those who are outside of His saving grace. We must go and tell the life-changing things that Jesus has done for us!
