Dear Reading Friends, Not long ago, I wrote you in Part I of this series about Christian confidence and how The COIL Series has characters with the right examples for us. Which characters have the right perspective of God to inspire me to trust Him through my daily dilemmas? Let me break down a few of those character sketches for you from my novel Dark Liaison, Book One in The COIL Series.
Christian Confidence within Dark Liaison
Corban Dowler – The director of COIL couldn’t commit his life to the preservation of Christians around the world without trusting in a God who is in control and cares about His people. Corban risks his life in mission after mission, confident that even in the darkness, God’s light burns bright.
Nathan Isaacson – This Special Forces operative for COIL is younger than his boss, Corban Dowler, but he’s no less trusting in God to give him strength to do the right thing, even when it’s hard. Nathan has lessons to learn, but because the Spirit of God indwells him, every situation brings Nathan face-to-face with what God wants, what God’s will is for his life.
Chloe Azmaveth – This secret agent woman shows us the struggle between confidence in self and confidence in what Jesus Christ has accomplished in her. Even her anger against the evils of the world are corrected by the confidence in the fact that God ultimately has a purpose. She is independent as a person on the move, yet dependent upon a Savior who now lives inside her.
Living Confidently for Him
Dark Liaison is a Christian novel, but it’s so much more than that. As a Special Forces Christian myself, daily on the front lines against spiritual darkness, I know how important it is for Christians to remain grounded in our confidence toward God. This will produce a clear understanding of the purpose of our lives and the goals set before us.
In our materialistic world where self must be appeased every moment, a Christian needs to be reminded that God has bigger goals for us—bigger than the hottest shoes, the latest tech, the fastest Internet, and the most modern car.
Join the COIL team today and find new ways to serve God’s people confidently. This means sitting down with your Bible and praying for God’s direction.
The time for Christ’s return is near. What will you be found doing when He comes back? I hope you will be found living confidently for Him!
“For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end.” Hebrews 4:14 KJV
