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 22, 2010 (If you do not ascend...)

If you do not ascend…

“Such as do not grow in grace, decay in grace.
There is no standing at a stay in religion,
either we go forward or backward;
if faith does not grow, unbelief will;
if heavenly mindedness doth not grow,
covetousness will.
A man that doth not increase his stock diminisheth it;
if you do not improve your stock of grace,
your stock will decay.
The angels on Jacob's ladder
were either ascending or descending;
if you do not ascend in religion, you descend.”
- Thomas Watson
