I have a confession to make. I am a gang member. I know by my opening statement that you are already drawing conclusions about me. Stereotyping me and my lifestyle. Well Im not ashamed to be in a gang. In fact I could not live without my gang family. Like any other gang, I need protection, acceptance, and security to survive. I would not be here writing you today if is was not for my gang family. I don’t know where I would be but I can only imagine it would be a very dark and lonely place.
You see, the gang I am affiliated with is more powerful then any other gang in the land. We are loyal and devoted to our gang family even unto death. There is no life outside of our gang family; no hope, no future, no peace.
So what is the name of my gang? Well we actually go by several names. Many people call us Christians, Bible Thumpers, and Jesus Freaks. I am proud to be called by anyone of those names but I prefer to call the gang Warriors 4 Christ.
Just like every other gang out there, we have identifying hand gestures, symbols, and even our own gang colors. People all around the world have seen our symbols, signs and colors. Its no secret and we don’t try to hide it. In fact we actually flaunt it openly. We want people to see what we represent.
You may have seen our gang signs, symbols, and colors before. Our symbol is the cross or crucifix. That is where the leader of the gang lost his life for his gang members. That symbol is very important to the gang. In fact, we would not exist as a family if it were not for that cross. Our gang color is red which represents the blood of our brave leader who fought the gangs greatest battle and won through the shedding of his blood. Our gang symbol and color goes hand in hand. Last but not least we have our gang signs. Now there are several different methods that will work here but I will discuss one of these methods with you now. I will actually teach you how to “throw up” our gang signs with your hands. Heres what you do, its very simple.
Take your right hand and press it against your left hand with both palms touching each other. Once the palm of both your hands are closed together interlace all your fingers. This will look like you have made one big fist using both of your hands as seen in the picture below
There are many other gang signs that Warriors 4 Christ “throw up.” This is just one example that should get you started. (For other examples study our book, The Holy Bible).
I highly suggest that you practice this method on a daily basis if you wish to join my gang. I never go a day without “throwing up” gang signs.
These are only a few of the basics, there are so many other things that I could tell you about my gang. There is no other gang like it in the world. We are currently recruiting new members. The gang is fighting battles on all sides. To learn more about my gang, just look to those whom you see wearing our gang symbol around there necklace or those that you see throwing up our gang signs. Ask them any questions you have about the gang and they will answer them if they are true members. We also have a club house that we meet at every Sunday morning. You will know it is our club house if you see the symbol of the cross displayed on the outside of the building. And if you are thinking of joining the gang but you are fearful of the initiation phase, don’t be. Someone has already paid your way into the gang. All you have to do is come.
Verse of the day:
23 Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. (Luke 9:23)
Challenge of the day:
Today I challenge you to throw up some gang signs! Pray for more recruits. We need more brave and loyal members to strengthen our gang family for battle against our adversaries. Our enemy will do anything to win the turf war in this gangland.
