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

behold the turtle

You can't spend a lifetime withdrawn
inside your own protective shell.

"Trust in the LORD and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness."
- Psalm 37:3 NASB

"For God did not give us a spirit of timidity,
but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord..."
- 2 Timothy 1:7,8 NIV

"So do not throw away your confidence;
it will be richly rewarded.
You need to persevere
so that when you have done the will of God,
you will receive what he has promised.
For in just a very little while,
He who is coming will come and will not delay.
But my righteous one will live by faith.
And if he shrinks back,
I will not be pleased with him.
But we are not of those who shrink back
and are destroyed,
but of those who believe and are saved."
- Hebrews 10:35-39 NIV

"Behold the turtle.
He makes progress only
when he sticks his neck out."
- James Bryant Conant
