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

in the sunlight

“Among Christians so much prominence
has been given to the disciplinary effects
of sorrow, affliction, bereavement,
that they have been in danger of
overlooking the other and more obvious side:
that by every joy, by every favor,
by every sign of prosperity --
yea, and by these chiefly --
God designs to educate and discipline His children.
This one-sided view of the truth
has made many morbid, gloomy Christians,
who look for God's hand only in the lightning
and never think of seeing it in the sunlight.”
- F. E. Clark
