The Son's Warrior Pendant comes with a card that includes the following blessing and symbolism:
My Love For You
My son, I give you this pendant as a symbol and as an everlasting reminder to you of my feelings for you. I hope you will hear these words from the deepest place in your heart and soul, because these words will forever be true:
I AM PROUD OF YOU! I BELIEVE IN YOU! AND I LOVE YOU!
For I have seen your true identity - you reflect God uniquely. I see in you a mighty warrior for Christ. I am honored to be your father and your brother in Christ. Please allow me to stand by you and fight for your life and legacy.
My Blessing to You
May you love God and others well; May you trust and obey Christ our King by absolute surrender to Him; May you live in purity and holiness, yet cling to and receive the grace of the cross when you fail; May you one day understand the suffering and true costs of being a disciple of Christ – yet choose to follow Him anyway; May you find other brothers in Christ for whom you will stand by and fight for their true identities; and May you believe in and embrace God’s good plan for your life and live out the noble and glorious purpose for which you were created.
My Request of You
My son, there is only one perfect Father, and He will never leave nor forsake you. I, on the other hand, will fail you miserably at times. I pray that I will know when in life to ask for your forgiveness. Above all else, please remember and know this: No matter the choices you make; no matter the life you live; no matter the successes – no matter the failures; and no matter the legacy you leave – I will forever love you, my son, in whom I am well pleased!
God to Jesus: “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matt. 3:17 NLT)
Symbolism of the Pendant
The Battle – The sword-shaped celtic cross is a reminder that you have been born into an unseen battle. Sins such as sexual lust, pride, and greed can be devastating to your mission. Yet you have the power in you- the Spirit – to overcome the world, flesh, and devil. (Mark 8:36; Gal 5:17; Eph. 6:12)
Your Identity- The sword is a reminder that I see in you a warrior for Christ. You have a wonderful and glorious call on your life. I pray that you will one day make the decision to be a follower and brother of Christ – no matter the cost. (Luke 14:25-33)
Band of Brothers - The 12 bright spots in the midst of the dark circle remind me that, just as Christ chose to surround himself with 12 other men, so too should I remember not to try to fight the battle alone. Both Christ and I invite you to be in our Band of Brothers. (Mark 3:35)
God's View of You - and Most Importantly, the cross is a reminder that when God looks at you, that he only sees your sin through the lens and perspective of Christ’s finished work on your behalf. You are a free man living under God’s new covenant. If you choose to accept God’s good and glorious plan for your life, your scars will not be in vain, victory is certain, and the rewards will be eternal. (Rom. 8:28-29)
