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

Grand Illumination

Grand Illumination

At Williamsburg, we sought
out the light generated by
a massive fireworks display.

We must daily seek His light
if we want to continue to grow

Being saved is not the end
but only the beginning of our
spiritual journey to establish
a personal relationship with God
as He intended it to be.

God has hidden every precious thing
in such a way that it is a reward to the diligent,
a prize to the earnest,
but a disappointment to the slothful soul.
All nature is arrayed against the lounger and the idler.
The nut is hidden in its thorny case;
the pearl is buried beneath the ocean waves;
the gold is imprisoned in the rocky bosom of the mountains;
the gem is found only after
you crush the rock which encloses it;
the very soil gives its harvest
as a reward to the laboring farmer.
So truth and God must be earnestly sought.”

- A.B. Simpson
