What Did He Do the Day After the Victory? November 5, 2012

It is often after victories that the greater defeat comes.  We win.  We rejoice.  We let down our guard.  The problem is that Satan never lets down his attack.  Vigilance is in short supply today and more desperately needed than ever.

Remember that it was after the Spirit descended on Christ at the baptism that the devil brought his most intense temptation.  It was after the day of Pentecost that persecution arose.  It was after David’s battlefield triumphs that he had a tragic failure.  

The Christian life is always present tense.  There is no place to stop.

A young man in Napoleon’s army was said to have given a valiant effort in battle.  Others recommended him for promotion.  The famous leader had but one question about the soldier: “What did he do the day after the victory?”  

If you are enjoying victory right now, thank the Lord.  But do not forget that the war is still raging.  Look to the Lord and look out for the enemy.  Every day counts.

Remains of Tel Motza. It was discovered by construction workers as they built a bridge across a valley. As you can see, parts of the site were destroyed in the construction process. The site is of interest because excavators found a small, fully functional replica of the Jerusalem Temple built here. Photo by John Buckner

Ruins of the Samaritan temple on Mount Gerizim overlooking Shechem. A massive, ancient staircase leads up from the valley floor to the temple. A small remnant of Samaritans lives nearby in a village on the mountain. They still practice their ancient religion.
