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

a relationship...


a relationship
"I believe the reason
we have had a great falling away
from the Word of God
is no one seeks Truth
once they have accepted it.
The biggest thing that strengthens our faith
from any doubt is the Truth.
Jesus said He is Truth.
Jesus is also known as the Word of God.
You can accept Jesus with only
hearing a little bit in the beginning,
that’s the way it usually always works.
However, when there is an assault
on the Word of God,
someone who doesn’t know it at all
has no way to identify heresy.
The Bible constantly warns us about many things.
It’s constantly warning us to do certain things.
If we don’t know it at all
we’re not going to be obeying those things.
Once again we are to come as we are.
However, when we accept His sacrifice,
we are supposed to start the process
of dying to ourselves and our own sinful nature
and begin living for Him.
No one is perfect and one will falter
usually on a daily basis,
but continue to walk forward not
backward.
The grace of Jesus was not meant
to be a get out of jail free card.
It was meant for us to accept
and begin the journey to serve him
and no longer our own self or wants.
What the Lord wants more than anything
is a relationship with His own
and for us to reach others
so He may have relationship with them.
If not, more will perish
and He doesn’t wish for any to do that.”
