Ruth 1:1-22; Isaiah 41:1-29; 2 Corinthians 1:1-24

Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning
every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may
present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: Whereunto I also
labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me
mightily. Colossians 1:27-29

The corporate world speaks of vision statements and mission
statements. They focus on a goal and hone their policies in reaching
it. This type of corporate talk is taken from New Testament thinking.
Of all people we should be forward thinking. Our vision? Christ
Himself. Our mission? To make disciples so that we and many like
us will be like Christ. Our backward movements result when we
stray from this heavenly vision. Aim at God’s goal. —J. A. Bjorlie

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Nought be all else to me, save that Thou art. —Dallan Forgaill
