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

holding onto the old ways

Even through the storms of life
many still hold onto their secular ways
although they are dead and lifeless in spirit.

The only way to find peace and joy
is to let go of that old life
so that we may be born anew.

We cannot “die to self”…
by that I mean we cannot do it
by our self.

Only by accepting Jesus Christ
as your Savior and acknowledge
that He died for your sins
and was resurrected from the dead
can we be dead to self.

“For we know that our old self
was crucified with him
so that the body of sin
might be done away with,
that we should no longer be slaves to sin—
because anyone who has died
has been freed from sin.”
- Romans 6: 6,7 NIV
