A Salute to Our Miltary

About 80,000 retirees live in Colorado Springs. Fortunately our neighborhood is home to quite a few military personnel. Some are retired; others are active military. I think the Air Force is more fully represented than the Army, but all our military neighbors are excellent neighbors.

Our next-door neighbor is a retired Air Force colonel. He and other Air Force and Army neighbors have applied their military discipline to the care of their homes and vehicles. They maintain their homes, yards, and vehicles spotlessly. They also display the flag proudly on national holidays and at other times. This show of patriotism adds a special touch to our neighborhood.

These neighbors with ties to the military are demonstrating good habits we can apply to the Christian life. The disciplined Christian conducts himself as “a good soldier of Jesus Christ” (2 Tim. 2:3). He maintains a “spotless” lifestyle (2 Pet. 3:14), and unashamedly demonstrates loyalty to Jesus, our Commander-in Chief (John 12:26; Rev. 2:10b).

Let’s represent our Lord well today!
