What’s the use of dog tags?
Obvious, you say. Certainly, for our pets, but what about the ones worn by humans?
Yes, human dog tags. The sort soldiers wear.
What’s the use of those dog tags?
It’s to identify the soldier as belonging to the army of their choice. If they are injured or (God forbid) killed, we want to know where to send them so they can receive their just reward.
1 Corinthians 3:22-23 tells us this applies to the soldiers in God’s army, also.
“Whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, and you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.”
You’ve got your dog tags on! They are seen in the life you live, the words you say, and your weekly church attendance.
Your prayers … your trust in God … your cool head when trouble comes your way. Those are the dog tags you wear.
When you are injured in your work for the Lord, or it’s time for you to travel home, your dog tags are your ticket to your just reward.
We boast of Jesus because he has claimed us for his own.
