Strength through Weakness



Growing in body.  In some ways, this is easier done than we would like to admit.  But that leads to the point, growing in control over this body is significantly more difficult than being controlled by this body.  Hence the reason that January 19 is Quitters Day, the average time when new year resolutions to get healthy are abandoned.  But this message is about more than being healthy in this physical body, it is also about not being slaves to the physical when the spiritual is what is eternal.
Pray for me in this area, and I will pray for you!
Christ accomplished the victory even over the body!

Steadfast in the Faithful God



Growing in wisdom.  James challenged his readers and us to call out to God for wisdom right after telling them to rejoice in tribulation for the endurance it produces in the believer’s life.  No coincidence.  James had seen in the life of Jesus that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.  And wisdom is to trust God even when the challenges of our life don’t make sense.  And Christ sustains us when we seek to trust Him above trusting our reasoning.

Jesus Growing Up



We don’t know many details, and it staggers the imagination.  Jesus was a baby, a toddler, a child, an adolescent, and young adult all before He was publicly revealed again to be the Messiah on the banks of the Jordan River.  And that growing up was vital part of being our Savior, fulfilling righteousness for us leading up to be our sinless Sacrifice.  But this little glimpse into His boyhood has much to teach us.

Jesus grew up.  We should continue to grow up as well.

Luke 2:39-52


Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!



We were blessed to hear from a good friend of Brad’s, visiting from the 49th State.  Greg Crawford presented to us what a change in perspective the disciples received after witnessing the transfiguration, a change that we need as followers of Christ as well.   A change that propels us back into the world with the wondrous message of Christ.
