ONWARD….CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS

You have probably sung that song most of your life, or at least you’ve heard it. Children love to march as they sing it! But, do you know what that old hymn really means?

We have just observed Veterans Day here in the United States of America. We honor those who have served in our armed forces and those who have given their lives so that we may enjoy freedom. They bravely went into life or death situations to fight against a known, visible enemy.
What love is this that our young men and women put their lives in harm’s way to fight for what is right.

The disciple of Jesus named John in his writings about love repeated Jesus’ words from John 15:13,
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.” 1 John 3:16

We are in a battle daily with the evil plot of Satan to destroy souls. It is called spiritual warfare! We have a Commander in Chief who knows the end result of the war! He fights for us,
II Chronicles 20:15 & 17 tells us “……..This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you.’ “

There is so much to share with you on this subject, so if you would like to read more, go to:
Ephesians 6:10-17 and II Timothy 2:1-13

The following are the words from that great old hymn written in 1874…

Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus going on before:
Christ the royal Master, leads against the foe;
Forward into battle, see His banners go.

Like a mighty army, moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod.
We are not divided, all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
But the church of Jesus constant will remain;
Gates of hell can never ‘gainst that Church prevail;
We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.

Onward, then, ye people, join our happy throng.
Blend with us your voices in the triumph song;
Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King;
This through countless ages, men and angels sing.

ONWARD, CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS, MARCHING AS TO WAR. WITH THE CROSS OF JESUS, GOING ON BEFORE!
