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

July 31, 2011 (shining with His glory)

shining with His glory

“The proper understanding of everything in
life begins with God.
No one will ever understand
the necessity of conversion
who does not know
why God created us.
He created us 'in His image'
so that we would image forth
His glory in the world.
We were made to be prisms
refracting the light of God’s glory
into all of life.
Why God should want to give us
a share in shining with His glory
is a great mystery.
Call it grace or mercy or love –
it is an unspeakable wonder.
Once we were not.
Then we existed –
for the glory of God!”
- John Piper
