Becoming a Warrior
Peace does not come naturally, but is something one must fight for. As Paul states, he fought the good fight . . . which is life. It is a fight for peace. McManus believes without inner peace, we will never have world peace. And so many are struggling with the attainment of peace within themselves.
A warrior, then is one who becomes a servant, as Jesus was a servant. A servant, a warrior, a person at peace within themselves does not seek attention, but works / fights for the ability to draw closer and have a tight connection to God.
The book was an encouraging book. At times a how to book, and at times it was a book encouraging to be the person God has uniquely called me to become.
He encourages the reader ~
“Never forget who you are.
You are a warrior of light. Do not fear the darkness.
You are a warrior of hope. Do not fear despair.
You are a warrior of faith. Do not fear uncertainty.
You are a warrior of love. Do not fear hate.
You are a warrior of peace. Do not fear the war within.
This is the fight of your life. This is the fight for your life. This is the way of the warrior.”
I would recommend this book. It is easy to read, yet filled with great nuggets of encouragement.
I received this book from Waterbrook Press in exchange for a honest review.
