Grace Community Church

Yesterday morning I was privileged to preach for Dr. John MacArthur at Grace Community Church on “How Should We Live and Die?” to about 3500 attendees. My good friend Dr. Steve Lawson (see photo above) followed up my message from Philippians 1 by preaching an unforgettable sermon in the evening on persevering in running the Christian race from Philippians 3:11-14. Particularly moving for me were his three points about “forgetting what is behind” while pressing forward. He stressed that if we are in Christ we are to (1) forget our past sins because they are nailed to the cross, (2) forget our past sufferings, and (3) forget our past successes—and put all our energy into running for the high prize of our calling in Christ. It was a blessed day.
