Forerunner: Preparing Christians for the Kingdom of God

November 1998
Volume 7, Number 10

The Bible frequently uses the imagery of a path or road to describe the life of a Christian. The road to God's Kingdom has been blazed by many before us, especially by "the captain of [our] salvation," Jesus Christ (Hebrews 2:10). Our job is to stay on the trail with God's help.  (PhotoDisc Photo)

Bible Study

by Martin G. Collins

No government—not even God's—can work without self-control. As a fruit of God's Spirit, this virtue may be the single hardest to master over the course of a lifetime, yet we need it to do our parts in God's Kingdom.
