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

way of life

"The call of God is not a call
to serve Him in any particular way.
My contact with the nature of God
will shape my understanding of His call
and will help me realize
what I truly desire to do for Him.
The call of God is an expression of His nature;
the service which results in my life
is suited to me and is an expression of my nature..."

"...Service is the overflow
which pours from a life
filled with love and devotion.
But strictly speaking, there is no call to that.
Service is what I bring to the relationship
and is the reflection of my identification
with the nature of God.
God brings me into the proper relationship
with Himself so that I can understand His call,
and then I serve Him on my own
out of a motivation of absolute love.
The Son of God reveals Himself in me,
and out of devotion to Him
service becomes my everyday way of life."
- Oswald Chambers
