Alpha and Omega...
The Bright and Morning Star is the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Stars are usually seen at night. There is a star that can shine so bright, it can be seen during the day.
When Saul of Tarsus was on his way to Damascus, he encountered a bright light during daytime. If you overcome, Jesus will let you join His club. The club of the Bright and Morning Star.
How do you overcome?
Overcome like Jesus overcame.
If you want to join the club of the Bright and Morning Star, study the life of Jesus.
Characteristics of Jesus Christ:
