Extra added forenote: I should say that this posting has nothing to do with the passing from officership of my good friend and brother, Captain Martin Thompson. The Army is losing a good officer and I hope you will uplift Martin and Kay in your prayers. AC
…of course, I will never resign. Thats not even in the questionning. I made a covenant with the Lord which I will never break. I believe God takes covenant seriously.
Interestingly, I was looking again at my covenant…something I do often.
CALLED BY GOD to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as an officer of The Salvation Army,
I BIND MYSELF TO HIM IN THIS SOLEMN COVENANT: to love and serve him supremely all my days, to live to win souls and make their salvation the first purpose of my life,
to care for the poor, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, love the unlovable, and befriend those who have no friends,
to maintain the doctrines and principles of The Salvation Army, and, by God’s grace, to prove myself a worthy officer.
Still called to that, God still gives grace for that. Praise his name.
