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

second-rate pleasures

“The message of the Bible
provides the only answer
to humanity's most pressing need:
to know God himself.
Having been created by God for God,
the 'self' can never be 'self-satisfied.'
Yet, having lost sight of the God
revealed in the Bible,
all we can see is our self,
with its futile drive to meet
its own ever-changing
but never satisfied cravings
for the second-rate pleasures of this world.”
- Scott Hafemann
