The significance of the Sword in Warrior Heart Ministries
The Sword serves as a reminder of what we as Christian men and women believe the attributes of a Christian warrior should be.
The Sword is:
Incapable of being shy, timid or suppressed
Has a mystical attraction
People are drawn to it
Both Offensive and Defensive Weapon
Only offensive weapon in the Armor of God
Very rare / can be used both to block and to attack
Close Proximity Weapon
Forces you to face your enemy, brings you out of your comfort zone
A Commitment Weapon
Is heavy and therefore requires effort to carry
Must be Kept Sharp
Not only the edge, but the skills and knowledge of it (the Word of God)
“Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright, that God may love thee.
Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong.
That is your oath.”
The Knights Oath from the movie – Kingdom of Heaven
