Battling Like Benaiah – 2 Samuel 23

Battling Like Benaiah – 2 Samuel 23

For this morning’s text, Nicky Mackison choses an assessment of Benaiah, one of David’s mighty men of valour.  At first sight, this man’s actions appear to have no relevance in today’s situation.  But Benaiah was fighting for his king against powerful enemies seeking to defeat and destroy his country.  Nick uses this as a reminder that, as Christians, we are called to fight for our king, Jesus, against the Devil, a powerful enemy seeking to destroy the kingdom of God.
