Julius Caesar took a decisive step to ensure victory in Britain when he invaded
that territory. As the legions marched up the cliffs of Dover, Caesar had them
pause and look down into the water below. They stood in disbelief as they saw
every ship that crossed the channel completely engulfed in flames. Caesar had
them torched so that there would be no possible way to retreat. Unable to
return to the continent, there was nothing left for them to do but advance and
be victorious. As Christians our commitment is to advancement which brings the
victories in life.
