1 Kings 20:17
And the young men of the princes of the provinces went out first; and Benhadad sent out, and they told him, saying…
During a great battle, a recruit who had lost his company in the tumult of strife, approached the general in command, and timidly asked where he should "step in." "Step in?" thundered the general. "Step in anywhere; there's fighting all along the line." A heavy piece of machinery was being moved into a building by means of a block and tackle. Suddenly one of the ropes parted, and the machine began to slide backward. The two men who had charge of the work sprang to stay its progress. "Give us a lift!" one of them shouted to a bystander. "Where shall I take hold?" asked the man thus addressed, unmindful of the fact that there was net a second to lose. "Grab hold anywhere!" yelled the mover. It may be that we are in a field where we are unaccustomed to work, and are timidly asking where we shall "step in." We may find our answer in the words, "Step in anywhere; there's fighting all along the line." Are you waiting to be called into some special Church work? "Step in anywhere." If you are willing, you can be used. This is not the time to pick and choose as to what work we shall do. The need is so great, the force against us so strong, that only one duty awaits the Christian disciple — to "take hold anywhere."
