1 Samuel 17:1-32 – Fleeing the Giant

1 Samuel 17:1-32 – Fleeing the Giant

“Only by desertion can we be defeated. With Christ and for Christ victory is certain. We can lose the victory by flight, but not by death. Happy are you if you die in battle, for after death you will be crowned. But woe to you, if by forsaking the battle, you forfeit at once both victory and crown.” BERNARD OF CLAIRVAUX

There are way too many Christians today who have all but given up; they have forsaken the battle; instead of facing the giants, they are fleeing the giants.  The story of David and Goliath should encourage us all to live as if we truly believe “we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!!”
