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 6, 2010 (joy of faith)

“Some of you seek for faith
much in the same way
as you would dig for a well.
You turn the eye inward upon yourself
and search amidst the depths
of your polluted heart
to find if faith is there;
you search amid all your feelings
at sermons and sacraments
to see if faith is there;
and still you find nothing
but sin and disappointment…
Look full in the face of Jesus…
Drink in His Word…
Faith comes by hearing the voice of Jesus.”
- Robert Murray McCheyne

“Faith is sustained by looking at Christ,
crucified and risen,
not by turning from Christ
to analyze your faith…
if we would experience the joy of faith,
we must not focus much on it.
We must focus on the greatness of our Savior.”
- John Piper
