Support logistics

After Ephesians 4:1-16

When we were called up,

and assembled into our unit

formed for basic training,

which could be and often is

rigorous and uncomfortable,

he didn’t leave us leaderless

or without resources.

We weren’t an army

without officers or leaders

or a supply train, 

a formless mass to be

tossed about by every wind

and wave. The call included

rather extensive resources:

apostles, prophets, evangelists,

shepherds, teachers, people

gifted to come along side

and lead the troops for the work

we were called to.

Love how you used modern imagery to illustrate how the early Christian "army" must have looked.
Blessings, Glynn!
