The T.B.C. Theme for 2016

“My brethren, dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, SO STAND FAST IN THE LORD, my dearly beloved.”      (Philippians 4:1)

Because of what Jesus Christ has done for us – because of his life, death, and resurrection, and the resulting victory over sin and the devil – we are now to stand fast in him, united as God’s soldiers against a spiritually hostile world.

He tells us to stand, and the implication of that command is that God has already done or is doing the conquering. We are only to hold the ground he conquers.

By the resurrection, God proclaimed his Son victor over the whole realm of darkness, and the ground Christ won he has given to us. We do not need to fight to obtain it. We only need to hold it against all challengers.

By God’s grace we shall expect at the end of the battle still to be standing with Christ victorious and triumphant. THEREFORE – STAND.
