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

growth and power

"Many Christians backslide...
They are unable to stand
against the temptations of the world,
or of their old nature.
They strive to do their best
to fight against sin, and to serve God,
but they have no strength.
They have never really grasped the secret:
The Lord Jesus will every day from heaven
continue His work in me.
But on one condition -
the soul must give Him time each day
to impart His love and his grace.
Time alone with the Lord Jesus each day
is the indispensable condition of growth and power."
- Andrew Murray
