What does Luke 14:32 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 14:32

Or else, while the other is a great way off
Upon his march, with resolution to come up and give battle, though as yet at a distance:

he sendeth an
or men, with an embassy to him:

and desireth conditions of peace;
greatly to his disadvantage and reproach: so to give out, and leave off fighting with sin, Satan, and the world, and make peace with them, is shameful and scandalous; but on the other hand, such who have engaged in this war, should pursue it with rigour and courage; considering that God is on their side; that Christ is the captain of their salvation; that the Spirit of God that is in them, is greater than he that is in the world; that angels encamp around them; that it is a good cause they are engaged in; that they have good weapons, the whole armour of God provided for them; are sure of victory, and shall at last enjoy the crown of life, righteousness and glory.
