It was a term I heard my father frequently use. Over the years his job put him in charge of a large number of men and it was very important because of security. Many times they would assign new men to be trained in that special field. Those particular jobs required teamwork and each person had to be very dedicated and do his part.I have seen my dad unofficially advise men at our home that they needed to consider moving or transferring to another group as this one was very intense and required a lot of dedication and commitment.For other men, for outright dereliction of duty, a court martial was handed down. Those situations reminded me of something in the Bible. It is one thing to become a Christian, but totally another to continue or be faithful the rest of our earthly lives. Many start with Christ but quickly abandon or slowly drift away, (2 Timothy 4:10, Revelation 2:4).For others some event will cause them to depart the Christian way. We are warned and told to watch out for this danger in the Christian life, (2 Peter 2:20-22, Matthew 5:13, 1 Timothy 6:9-10). If we have drifted or abandoned, there is hope; we can return. God is willing to accept us back if we repent and ask Him, (James 4:8-10, 1 John 1:9, Revelation 3:2-3, Malachi 3:7). See you in Church next Sunday.
