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

“The hindrance in our spiritual life
is that we will not be continually converted,
there are wedges of obstinacy where our pride
spits at the throne of God and says - I won't.
We deify independence and willfulness
and call them by the wrong name.
What God looks on as obstinate weakness,
we call strength.
There are whole tracts of our lives
which have not yet been brought into subjection,
and it can only be done by this continuous conversion.
Slowly but surely we can claim
the whole territory for the Spirit of God.”
Oswald Chambers
