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 08, 2011 (remain steadfast)

be steadfast in the Lord

The venerable oak is often
used as a symbol of strength.

We must remain steadfast in the Lord.

“People do not drift toward holiness.
Apart from grace-driven effort,
people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer,
obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord.
We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance;
we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom;
we drift toward superstition and call it faith.
We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control
and call it relaxation;
we slouch toward prayerlessness
and delude ourselves into thinking
we have escaped legalism;
we slide toward godlessness
and convince ourselves
we have been liberated.”
- D.A. Carson
