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

June 21, 2011 (help us grow)

help us grow

“Every adversity that comes across our path,
whether large or small,
is intended to help us grow in some way.
If it were not beneficial,
God would not allow it or send it,
‘For he does not willingly bring
affliction or grief to the children of men’
(Lamentations 3:33).
God does not delight in our sufferings.
He brings only that which is necessary,
but He does not shrink from
that which will help us grow.”
- Jerry Bridges
