God’s Army Magnifies the Law

Call to Worship


Isaiah 42: 21

The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make [it] honourable.


God’s Army Magnifies the Law—

Those who belong to Christ’s army must work with concerted action. They cannot be faithful soldiers unless they obey orders. United action is essential. An army in which every part acts without reference to the other parts, has no real strength. In order to add new territory to Christ’s kingdom, His soldiers must act in concert.... He calls for a united army, which moves steadily forward, not for a company composed of independent atoms. The strength of His army is to be used for one great purpose. Its efforts are to be concentrated upon one great point—the magnifying of the laws of His kingdom before the world, before angels, and before men (Manuscript 82, 1900). {4BC 1146.4}


No one limb is independent of the body. The action of one has an effect on the entire being. If one part of the whole is cut off and goes missing, then the whole will feel the void left behind. Same as when one worker decides to go off on their own. Without, their power diminishes. This not only hurts the one, but also the whole. To be effective soldiers for Christ’s army, every part must work together in unison with the rest. United in strength, Christ’s army can carry out their one great purpose, helping to save souls for Christ’s kingdom, that none should perish but have everlasting life.


Our Father,

We thank You for giving us the privilege of being soldiers in Your army and helping to magnify Your law. As a house divided against itself cannot stand, we pray that You will help us stay united in strength to fulfill the mission You have appointed us to do. We pray for Your strength to continue moving forward in saving souls for Your kingdom, that none should perish but have everlasting life. Anoint our heads with oil, and may our cup runneth over. We pray that You will be well pleased, and let not our will, but let Thy will be done. We thank You for hearing and answering our prayers, in the name of Christ Jesus, we pray. Amen.
