WOUNDED SOLDIERS

“The Christian army is the only army that shoots and buries its wounded…. We [also] leave them to bleed to death in the field” (Freddie Gage). How true of how Christians treat their erring ones!

A wounded Samson brought down the Philistine kingdom. And a wounded Savior took down the gates of hell with Him. “Being wounded is not the end; it is the beginning of a new frontier in battle” (Noel Masvosvere).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
