Ex. 14, 15

From the human viewpoint this was a gloomy time–the sea in front, mountains on either side.  Pharaoh’s host in pursuit.  No earthly power promised deliverance.

I.

It was God’s cause.  He is a God that takes sides, is not indifferent when the good of men is involved.  They cried to God, as did Moses.

II.

God directed them to go forward.  That was the one only way out.  “Theirs not to reason why.”  Let them heed God’s voice.  He would make a way of escape from the perils of the hour, and all would be well.

III.

This is God’s call to the his church–go forward to larger conquests and service.

(a)  The cause is his.  He needs the devotion of loyal hearts.  Righteousness must win, else all is lost.

(b)  We are his.  He has brought us to this hour for such a time as this.  He claims us for his service.  There must be no let up on our part.  The salvation of the world depends upon the loyal service of his people.  Shall his soldiers surrender to Satan?

IV.

In every crisis let the church arouse itself and stand true to him.  This is the way to impress the world for good.  It will give little heed to us in the future if we falter now.  Continue to press forward in every good cause.  God is calling for valiant service.

Be good soldiers of Jesus Christ.
