Pastor’s Note 3-1-22

We are beginning the month that, to me, means action.  March is more than a name of a month on the calendar, it is a command.  To march means to walk in a stately, deliberate manner.

To march forth does not imply charging, or pushing through haphazardly.  If anything, it implies a slow methodical step in the right direction toward some particular goal, often one that may frighten us.  It implies a careful step with discernment as we progress.

To march forth means to establish intent, to engage willpower and hopefulness, often enough to take just one step.  This self-command might be needed at a time when we feel stuck, when we need to keep plugging away.  This is often a psychological and personal spiritual command.

In Joshua 6:3, God gives Joshua and the army a command to march around the walls of Jericho one time for six days.  It was to be done with complete focus, without distractions. 

I was in the marching band in high school and we were not allowed to march with our heads down or in a slouched position.  We were required to march with our backs straight, our heads up, and our shoulders back.  If we played a wrong note, we kept marching.  If we messed up, we kept marching.  It didn’t matter what happened, we kept on marching.  

It doesn’t matter what happens in this life, we just need to keep marching.
