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

different these days

"Mainstream Christianity glosses over the fact
that it isn't just a question of giving up sin,
but of doing something far more difficult -
giving up our right to ourselves.
The sin life in us must be transformed
into the spiritual life....
through sacrifice and obedience.
"She laughed with delight.'You're so different these days.'
He laughed with her.'I pray so,' he said."
