Let us than leave behind the things of our lives that so easily
beset us and press onward, forward and upward toward the mark of the
high calling of God.
Forgetting and forgiving all things of the past which will be no
more; for to dwell on the things of the past as many do is always
counter productive and is always an exercise in futility that serves no
The future is our hope and the future is when the Kingdom of God
will finally at last come to pass; the dead in Christ who are in their
graves will rise and all things will be made new; for all the former
things will pass away and be no more.
Let us than be the first fruits of the Kingdom of Heaven, the first
rays of dawn's early light heralding the coming of the sunrise of
the new day; messengers of God hope and newness of life; a beacon of
light in the night.
