6 ConclusionWhen we are in the way of our duty, though we met with difficulties, we must go forward, and not stand in mute astonishment; we must mind present work and then leave the even to God, use means and trust Him with the issue.“Playing safe is probably the most unsafe thing in the world. You cannot stand still. You must go forward.” – Robert CollierChrist, our mighty Captain, leads against the foe, We will never falter when He bids us go; Tho’ His righteous purpose we may never know, Yet we’ll follow all the way.Forward! forward! ’tis the Lord’s command; Forward! forward! to the promised land; Forward! forward! let the chorus ring: We are sure to win with Christ, our King! (Carrie E. Breck – 1900)“And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward” Exodus 14:15
