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

hard nut to crack

We must accept Jesus Christ as our Savior,
asking forgiveness of our sins in His name
while believing in our heart that
He died for our sins and ascended into heaven.
This is the ONLY way to be redeemed.

After we are saved,
in order to continue our spiritual growth,
we must love our fellow man,
and be obedient to God,
giving ourselves to God’s Will,
following His Way and becoming Christlike.

This is both easy and very difficult.

Listen to our “helper”…
the Holy Spirit within us,
for it is He
that will be our guide.

“But I tell you the truth,
it is to your advantage that I go away;
for if I do not go away,
the Helper will not come to you;
but if I go, I will send Him to you.…
when He, the Spirit of truth, comes,
He will guide you into all the truth.”
- John 16: 7,13 NASB

And remember…

“The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit
that we are children of God, and if children,
heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ,
if indeed we suffer with Him
so that we may also be glorified with Him.”
- Romans 8: 16,17 NASB

“Must is a hard nut to crack,
but it has a sweet kernel.”
- Charles Spurgeon
