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

November 17, 2010 (remnants of sin)

“The Christian life is a war,
and the fiercest battles are those that rage
within the heart of every believer.
The new birth radically and permanently
changes a person’s sinful nature,
but it does not immediately liberate that nature
for all of the remnants of sin.
Birth is followed by growth,
and that growth involves warfare.”
- Tom Ascol

“To fight against sin
is to fight against the devil,
the world and oneself.
The fight against oneself
is the worst fight of all.”
- Martin Luther
