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

look away to the Perfect One

"I have a great need for Christ;
I have a great Christ for my need."
- Charles Haddon Spurgeon

"Tozer once said,
'Like the eye which sees everything in front of it
and never sees itself,
faith is occupied with the Object upon which it rests
and pays no attention to itself at all.
While we are looking at God,
we do not see ourselves- blessed riddance.
The man who has struggled to purify himself
and has had nothing but repeated failures
will experience real relief
when he stops tinkering with his soul
and looks away to the Perfect One.
'Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable
and receives the impossible."
- Corrie Ten Boom
