Moving on to the future without letting go of the past is like tying your arm to a post while catching a train.
Standing on the mountain top and looking around is a great way of seeing where the road ahead might be leading. The thing is, we’ll get nowhere unless we come down from the heights and set off on the road into 2018 and beyond.
We grow more from participation than we do from observation. Perseverance (keeping on) is a means by which we get closer to Christ. Not controlled by our past we look forward with single minded purpose to where Christ is leading us.
