Growing in a Godly Direction
“O Jesus Christ, grow Thou in me, And all things else recede;
My heart be daily nearer Thee, From sin be daily freed.”
Praise God, our shepherd, who guides us in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake! Dr. Bridges talked about “Growing in a Godly Direction” (John 3:22-30). Are you growing wild like a weed or tall like a tree planted by the river? If we truly love and submit to Jesus Christ, more of Him will shine through in everything we do so that others will be ultimately drawn to Him. We pray that we be as humble as John the Baptist and always be content to declare “He must increase, but I must decrease.” If you don’t have a church home, we welcome you to join us this Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
