In this final sermon from the 2016 Texas Labor Day Meeting, Brother Ronny Wade discusses a number topics this it is "high time" Christians consider and implement. Topics discussed include church faithfulness, church discipline, christian maturity, and evangelism.

Woe to the one who breaks their covenant and woe to the congregation who fails to invoke God mandated discipline upon covenant breakers.

The subject of church discipline is an oft overlooked and forgotten issue.

Many Christians today fail to appreciate the benefit the Old Testament can bring to their daily walk. The Old Testament is often looked upon as a collection of interesting stories, and Israel is viewed as a forgotten people. Yet many of the New Testament writers base their teaching on an understanding of the Old Law and its people. To fail to study and appreciate the Old Covenant and people of God is to rob one’s self of important insights into the New Covenant and the New Kingdom. One such insight is provided by God in the parallel He establishes between physical Israel and spiritual Israel (the church).
