The Guide with Greg Munck

The Guide with Greg Munck

In USMC bootcamp I was the platoon leader and carried the platoon flag called a guidon, in turn that made me The Guide. The fear of death in combat led me to the feet of the cross, and Jesus became The Guide of my life. At that moment, I became a solider for Christ. Over the coming weeks, we are going to be looking at how God as the guide over our lives, guides a soldier’s: Identity, Growth, Surrender, Purpose and Worth. Most of us want to be good and faithful soldiers, and we know what the opposite of those things are and what they produce. What is guiding you is what will determine what kind of soldier you will be.

    Surrender is not a word that is in my vocabulary, and “never ever quit, never” is something I say all the time. Surrender is an absence of resistance. There is only one thing worthy of surrendering to, and that is the God that created the heavens and the earth, the God who created you. He is the...

    Without purpose, we will perish. As solider’s we understand what it means to please our commanding officer (CO), to execute the mission. As men of God, our commanding officer is Jesus, and we strive to be more like our CO. We do that by training in Godliness, so we model Jesus, we get familiar wi...
