God took a faithful servant who for years had humbly filled his office as scribe in the shadows of a great prophet and turned him into atrusted adviser. Baruch, who otherwise would have been anonymous, in the end won for himself a respected influence with others beyond what his station in life would have normally given him. 47 Bible Nobodies Who Became Somebodies LIFE LESSON B oldly proclaiming the Word of God will have a price tag in our generation just as it did in the days of Jeremiah and Baruch.
One man is valiant in bringing the gospel into the public forum: give him a sword and let him fight his battle in his own way. Another man is valiant in prayer: let him also have his sword and fight his secret battle in the solitude of prayer. Another is brilliant in leading and inspiring others in the great battle for righteousness and purity and love. It is a pitiable day for the Church when she forgets that though the regiments are many the army is one. Is it a time to be fighting over uniforms, badges, and awards of distinction, when the enemy is at the gate, his mouth filled with boasting, and his eyes blazing with malignant passion?
The battle has only changed its ground, its scope, and its purpose since the valiant days of Benaiah. Life is still a tremendous fight, though we may never fight renowned warriors of Moab or seven-footers from Egypt. The weapons of our warfare are spiritual, but they are not, therefore, the less weapons of war, and our warfare is not the less warfare. “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand” (Ephesians 6:13).
