marching as to war

“In Christ’s kingdom there can be no conscientious objectors. In Christ’s church, there is no inactive duty. To be a disciple is to be a soldier of the cross… The term of enlistment is a lifetime, beginning with conversion, ending with the discharge papers or transfer to the church triumphant in heavenly rest, where we are eager to hear the words, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’”

--Stanley Gale, author of Warfare Witness: Contending with Spiritual Opposition in Everyday Evangelism, as quoted by Tim Challies in "Marching As To War"
