FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:
OUR MARCHING ORDERS: FORWARD AND UPWARD
“Speak to the children of Israel, that they go forward [not backward].”Exo. 14:15, A.V.
In any journey, undertaking, enterprise or mission, failure to move forward is actually falling backward. In spiritual matters, it is backsliding. In nature, if a plant is not growing, it is dying.
“The history of the children of Israel is written for the instruction and admonition of all Christians. When the Israelites were overtaken by dangers and difficulties, and their way seemed hedged up [just like right now], THEIR FAITH [in God and in His word] FORSOOK THEM, and they murmured against the leader whom God had appointed for them.
