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

evangelism and humility

It is a heart filled with the fire,
the passion of Christ,
radiating outward to others
but toned down a bit…
mixing that reddish hot inner passion
with the cool blue of humility
that results in a royal purple
of the Spirit of Christ.

“God is waiting for us to humble ourselves.
He opposes the proud;
He doesn’t bless their ministry.
When we trust in ourselves
and our brilliant ministry strategy,
He will have nothing to do with us.
It’s only when we rely on Him
— walking in His Spirit —
that He will reward our efforts.
As our Master said,
‘whoever lives in Me will have much fruit;
apart from Me you can’t do anything’
(John 15:5).”
