"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

"While we sometimes speak of grace
as an inherent quality,
it is in reality the active communication
of divine blessings
by the inworking of the Holy Spirit,
out of the fullness of Him
who is "full of grace and truth."
Rom. 3:24; 5:2, 15; 17:20; 6:1; I Cor. 1:4; II Cor. 6:1; 8:9;
Eph. 1:7; 2:5, 8; 3:7; I Pet. 3:7; 5:12.”
- Louis Berkhof
