The Jedi were Missionaries

So this is another conception of how random stuff is related to the gospel.

I love how "all things denote there is a God." (Alma 30:44)

So Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi are the GOOD guys....
......Darth Maul is the BAD guy.

Missionaries are the GOOD guys.....the Devil is the BAD guy.

Two Jedi against one Sith....Two Missionaries against one Devil....
....seems pretty close to me. ;)

So as we know the Jedi were the guardians and protectors of peace in the galaxy that is very far away.  We as missionaries guard and protect the truthfulness of the gospel here on earth.  We teach others about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and how it helps balance their lives.  The Jedi taught how to work with others to maintain balance in the Force.  The Jedi always avoided conflict unless there was no other choice.  Missionaries only have Spiritual conflict when we can't avoid it.

Basically the "BAD GUY" doesn't like what we are doing, and sometimes we don't always win.  Indeed everyone falls down at some point in life, but Christ is always there to help us get up.  Just like when Obi-Wan had to jump much higher than he normally could, Christ is there to help us jump up Spiritually, and keep on fighting.  Even when things don't look like we are winning, if we turn to the Lord, He will help us and even fight our battles for us.

I have experienced this several times, where I feel like I just can't go any further, He steps in and gives me that extra strength to keep going.  I promise anyone who is having a hard time or a bad day, that if you kneel down and say a prayer He will always be there to help you when you ask Him.
