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

flowing into us

“Apart from Him we can do nothing.
While we are abiding in Him,
nothing is impossible.
The one purpose of our life
should therefore be to remain
in living and intense union with Christ,
guarding against everything
that would break it,
employing every means
of cementing and enlarging it.
And just in proportion as we do so,
we shall find His strength flowing into us
for every possible emergency
[Philippians 4:13].
We may not feel its presence;
but we shall find it present
whenever we begin to draw on it.
There is no temptation which we cannot master;
no privation which we cannot patiently bear;
no difficulty with which we cannot cope;
no work which we cannot perform;
no confession or testimony which we cannot make,
if only our souls are living
in healthy union with Jesus Christ;
for as our day or hour,
so shall our strength be.”
- F. B. Meyer
