The Future Belongs to the Vigilant: A Guide to Advancing the Kingdom of Christ—Part 1

By James Brown Jr.

Introduction

It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.”1

As we begin the year 2017, it is important that we forget what is behind us and reach toward the things that are before us by pressing toward the mark of the high calling of Jesus Christ. Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, this is what Paul instructs the Church in his epistle to the Philippians (Philippians 3:13-14)

Paul notes it is important to move beyond our shortcomings with the resolve to press on to achieve the goal. In order to accomplish this we must forget the past and focus upon the things in front of us.

Promotion Poster: Interview with Gary DeMar


Coming This Wednesday: Interview with Gary DeMar

On this special episode of Standing Firm, Pastor James Brown Jr will interview Gary DeMar. Gary is an author, lecturer and former president of American Vision. He has written over 30 books and appeared on numerous radio and TV programs.

James and Gary will be discussing the 2016 Presidential election from a Biblical worldview. This election has been the most heated and debated among conservative Christians in our lifetime. There is a lot of anger, frustration and confusion but we will try to make sense of it all with the Bible as our guide.

Should Christians vote for a third party candidate? What is the cause of this political nightmare? What are the issues? What is at stake? How should Christians utilize their vote most effectively in order to restrain sin and advance the light of Jesus Christ? These questions and more will be discussed and answered so that we might be equipped to engage this culture for Christ.

Don't miss this very important program on November 2, 2016 at 2:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. This program will be availble on demand after the conclusion of the live broadcast.
