MARCHING FOR JESUS
“Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.”
Psalms 60:4 KJV
Evangelist Daniel Webster Whittle wrote one of my favorite hymns “The Banner Of The Cross”. “Marching on, marching on, For Christ count everything but loss! And to crown Him King, we’ll toil and sing, ’Neath the banner of the cross!” Are we doing what we sing? Are we marching for Jesus?
It makes satan very angry when we march for Jesus and he will do all he can do to discourage us so much that we give up and stop marching for our precious Saviour. We must not allow satan to defeat us. As soon as satan attacks us, we need to cry out to Jesus and ask Him to help us and He will help us.
May God help us to stay on the battlefield for Jesus no matter how many lies and vicious darts satan hurls at us and keep marching. Jesus stayed on the battlefield for us and He was abused, ridiculed, scorned, cursed and rejected and endured pain and agony more than you and I will ever know.
To prove how much He loves us, Jesus walked that long lonely road to
Calvary and allowed them to crucify Him on a cross for
your sins and for my sins. I have said
this before and I will keep saying it until Jesus comes back for us or God
calls me home. Nobody loves you like Jesus
loves you and nobody ever will.
Heavenly Father, please help us to keep marching for Jesus. Thank You for being a compassionate and loving Father, a Father Who will never yell at us, curse us, or hit us. You are so wonderful and I love You, dear Father. Thank You for adopting me into Your family. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
