DAILY READINGS: 2 Chronicles 29:1-36; Ezekiel 45:1-25; John 20:19-31

But this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. Phil. 3:13

What does this mean for the Christian? It means that whatever is behind us, good or bad, is not to be trusted or relied on for the future. Only our faith in Jesus matters and the fact that we’ll spend eternity in heaven with Him. Our focus and priority should be about our relationship with the Lord, not on earthly things. Wise is the Christian that makes intimacy with God their number one objective. That’s a worthy goal surely to be rewarded by Him! —Deborah Manera

Others may deny the Lord and live in sin,
But the race that I have entered, I must win,
Through the pearly gates, I mean to enter in,
I have settled the question forever. —H. Lillenas
