Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

playing by the same rules

Have you ever played a game with someone
who makes up the rules (or changes the rules) as you play?
The Lord doesn't play those kind of games
and the rules (laws) that He has given us
never change.

He never changes either.

"We're never so vulnerable than when we trust someone -
but paradoxically, if we cannot trust,
neither can we find love or joy."
- Walter Anderson

We can trust in Him.

"The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul.
The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The precepts of the LORD are right,
giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the LORD are radiant,
giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever.
The ordinances of the LORD are sure
and altogether righteous."
- Psalm 19: 7-9 NIV
