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

spiritual outlook
photo by Patrick Frey

“Take stock of yourself spiritually and see
whether you have ideals only or if you have vision.
’Where there is no vision. . . .’
When once we lose sight of God,
we begin to be reckless,
we cast off certain restraints,
we cast off praying,
we cast off the vision of God in little things,
and begin to act on our own initiative.
If we are eating what we have out of our own hand,
doing things on our own initiative
without expecting God to come in,
we are on the downward path,
we have lost the vision.
Is our attitude today an attitude
that springs from our vision of God?
Are we expecting God to do greater things
than He has ever done before?
Is there a freshness and vitality
in our spiritual outlook?”
- Oswald Chambers
(My Utmost for His Highest)
