Be a beacon of light in the night

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 useful purpose.

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.
