Marching Orders

Sometimes the monotony of life can convince us that there really isn't anything of serious significance or consequence happening. The reality is that we are in the middle of a serious spiritual battle that has been raging since the beginning. Today we look at 2 Timothy to find the marching orders Paul gives soldiers in Christ.
