A poem extracted from
by D. W. Whittle
Forward then, with Jesus sharing
In the warfare here, below!
Forward! in His name unfearing,
Boldly meeting every foe.
Count it never a disaster,
When the shame for Him you bear,
But rejoice that such a Master,
Gives you in His cross a share.
Unto sin be daily dying,
That His life may through thee shine;
Find thy strength in lowly lying
At the piercéd feet divine.
Soon the earthly conflict over,
Christ will come to claim His own;
Oh, the grace - the grace, my brother! -
If He then shall say, 'Well done!'"
"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" 2 Cor 10:3-5 KJV
