  1. What’s next ? Colossians 1 : 1-14

  2. Psalm 39 : 4, 5 “LORD, let me know my

    [life’s] end and [to appreciate] the extent of my days; Let me know how frail I am [how transient is my stay here]. “Behold, You have made my days as [short as] hand widths, And my lifetime is as nothing in Your sight. Surely every man at his best is a mere breath [a wisp of smoke, a vapor that vanishes]! Selah. (Amplified )
  3. LOOK UP - pray Colossians 1 :9,10 “For this reason,

    since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you.

  4. MOVE FORWARD - grow Philippians 3:13-14 “Brothers and sisters, I

    do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” (NIV) Philippians 1 : 27 “stand firm as one man, in one spirit for the sake of the gospel” (NIV)
  5. REACH OUT – go Matthew 16 :18 "I will build

    My church and the gates of Hell will not prevail against it.“ (NIV) Matthew 11: 12 “From the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing and forceful men lay hold of it”. (NIV) Matthew 6:33 "Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things shall be given to you." (NIV)
