Joy must be grown – Henry Drummond

Joy must be grown – Henry Drummond

“No one can get Joy by merely asking for it. It is one of the ripest fruits of the Christian life, and, like all fruits, must be grown.

Dying to Live – Lettie B. Cowman

Dying to Live – Lettie B. Cowman

You must die in order to live. You must refuse to consult your own ease and well-being. You must be crucified, not only in desires and habits which are sinful, but in many more which appear innocent and right.

God’s Most Effective Tool in Our Lives – Charles Stanley

God’s Most Effective Tool in Our Lives – Charles Stanley

Adversity is not simply a tool. It is God’s most effective tool for the advancement of our spiritual lives. The circumstances and events that we see as setbacks are oftentimes the very things that launch us into periods of intense spiritual growth. Once we begin to understand this, and accept it as a spiritual fact of life, adversity becomes easier to bear.

Transformation is a process – David Kinnaman

Transformation is a process – David Kinnaman

Most people in America, when they are exposed to the Christian faith, are not being transformed. They take one step into the door, and the journey ends. They are not being allowed, encouraged, or equipped to love or to think like Christ. Yet in many ways a focus on spiritual formation fits what a new generation is really seeking. Transformation is a process, a journey, not a one-time decision.
