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

“Keep your lives free
from the love of money
and be content with what you have,
because God has said,
"Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you."
- Hebrews 13:5 NIV

“If we can only grasp these words by faith,
we have an all-conquering
weapon in our hand.
Will not the distresses of life
and the pangs of death;
will not the corruptions within,
and the snares without;
will not the trials from above,
and the temptations from beneath,
all seem but light afflictions,
when we can hide ourselves
beneath the bulwark of ‘He hath said’?
Since ‘He hath said’ is
the source of all wisdom,
and the fountain of all comfort,
let it dwell in you richly,
as ‘A well of water,
springing up unto everlasting life.’
So shall you grow healthy, strong,
and happy in the divine life.”
- Charles Spurgeon

"Like as the waves make towards the pebbl'd shore,
so do our minutes, hasten to their end.”
- William Shakespeare
