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

"The greatest joy is joy in God.
This is plain from Psalm 16:11:
'You [God] will make known to me the path of life;
in Your presence is fullness of joy;
in Your right hand there are pleasures forever.'
Fullness of joy and eternal joy cannot be improved.
Nothing is fuller than full, and nothing is longer than eternal.
And this joy is owing to the presence of God,
not the accomplishments of man.
Therefore, if God wants to love us infinitely
and delight us fully and eternally,
he must preserve for us the one thing
that will satisfy us totally and eternally;
namely, the presence and worth of his own glory.
He alone is the source of full and lasting pleasure."
- John Piper
