Gen. Sheridan says “If the thing is pressed I think that Lee will surrender.” Let the thing be pressed. A. LINCOLN
So Grant pressed for surrender and two days later, Lee surrendered to General Grant, in the town of Appomattox Court House, thus ended four years of Civil War.
For several years various Generals had Lee on the run, only to delay and let him escape to continue the fight. That’s why Lincoln words were so necessary. The thing needed to be pressed
What needs to be pressed in your life today? A friend needing to be told the Gospel, a slight forgiven, a sin repented of, a wrong righted.
When we put off and delay things of consequence, we may never get another chance.
Let the thing be pressed!
