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

December 1, 2010 (persevering faith)

“Our Lord does not promise to change life for us;
He does not promise to remove difficulties
and trials and problems and tribulations;
He does not say that He is going
to cut out all the thorns
and leave the roses with their wonderful perfume.
No; He faces life realistically,
and tells us that these are things
to which the flesh is heir,
and which are bound to come.
But He assures us that
we can so know Him that,
whatever happens,
we need never be frightened,
we need never be alarmed.”
- D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

“Amid trials hard,
temptations strong,
and troubles constant,
true faith is persevering faith.”
- Author Unknown
