What does "ride for the brand" mean?

The history of the American West is filled with these kinds of phrases that reveal the nature of the men and women who came west.  "Ride for the brand" in the words of the western writer, Louis L'Amour, was "an expression of loyalty to a man's employer or the particular outfit he rode for.  It was considered a compliment of the highest order in an almost feudal society.  If a man did not like a ranch or the way they conducted their affairs he was free to quit, and many did, but if he stayed on, he gave loyalty and expected it."

In these days, it can be a matter of courage to pick and choose God's Outfit to work for and to be loyal to.  Living with Christ's integrity to values, really living them involves, sometimes difficult, but necessary choices.  A productive and happy life come from "riding for the brand."

Here at Cowboy Junction we are riding for Christ's brand together.  Our congregation is in the continual process of

  • “Share each other’s troubles and problems, and in this way obey the law of Christ” Galatians 6:2, (NLT)

  • "Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other's faults because of your love."  Ephesians 2:4b (NLT)

  • "Be friendly with everyone. Don't be proud and feel that you are smarter than others. Make friends with ordinary people."  Romans 12:16 (CEV)

  • "Encourage one another and build each other up." 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV)
