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

"Most of us have been taught about the need
to appropriate by faith what is already ours through grace.
We all desire to have more joy in our Christian life.
The keys to experiencing joy are available to all of us.
We need to understand the gospel
of the grace of God as revealed to the Apostle Paul.
Then as we put Paul's instructions into practice,
we will come to know God experientially.
This will cause us to know Him better
which will cause us to want to obey more,
and on and on it goes.
Then as we learn and obey God
and become focused on spiritual things
instead of earthly things,
we will become thankful for everything
that God has provided for us in Christ.
Knowledge, obedience, and thankfulness
will then lead to abundant joy in our everyday life!
In the words of the old hymn: Trust and obey,
For there's no other way, To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey."
- David Havard
