We are Pioneers

Yes, we are pioneers. Remember Little House on the Prairie? Or what about Gunsmoke or Bonanaza? I may be dating myself here. Yet, all of these TV shows were based on going into the wilderness and conquering new lands. Going where no man has gone before – yes even Star Trek!

As Christians, are we not the modern day Pioneers?

Bringing the precious Word of God and presence of God to new territories?

Jesus is the Pioneer of our Faith!

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.(Hebrews 12 1-3 NIV)

I recently came across this video on YouTube and it really stirred the Spirit within me. Let’s go conquer those new lands and new places that God has called us to!

Pioneer, Pioneer
Keep pressing onwards beyond your fears
And only your Father goes before you to your own frontier
You’re a Pioneer

[Verse 1]
Uncharted wilderness stretches before you
And you thrive on going where no one has gone
Still it gets lonely when darkness rears
So sing by the fire until the dawn


[Verse 2]
You travel light and you travel alone
And when you arrive nobody knows
But your Father in heaven, He is glad you can go
Cause those who come after you will need the road


[Verse 3]
And what you have done, others will do
Bigger and better and faster than you
But you can?t look back, you gotta keep on pressing through
There’s a wilderness pathway and it’s calling you

[Last chorus]
Calling you, calling you
Keep pressing onwards beyond your fears
And only your Father goes before you to your own frontier
You’re a Pioneer
