Path unto Maturity

Staying spiritually fit, to meet what Christ has called us too…

  •   Presenting everyone fully matured in Christ
  •   Teaching in wisdom and power and faith, that He has established in us.

Grounded by love, the love of the one who sent us, who called us out into His service…

Rooted in the Word, strengthened by The Spirit, and cleansed by His blood…
Finding the meat of the Word more and more appealing, yearning for more of Christ, and desiring less of self…

Being full on the milk of the Gospel, ready and willing to be mature, no longer content to sit at the feet of Christ alone, but ready to see the active workings of God upon one’s life… ready to bear fruit, as one well established upon the vine
With this certain hope set before us, looking back at the miracle of change He has worked upon our lives

  Yet looking forward as well, motivated by the love instilled in us, as we dip deeply from the font the ever flows

      and looking presently with opened eyes, with opened ears, and having been given a new heart… We submit ourselves before our Lord, partaking of His fullness, and what He has for us
Seeking His all and all, in everything… in the morning greeting the dawn with joy, standing tall upon the Rock as we face the world, finding Him right there, waiting to lift us up, in our weakness and in our pain, reaching out your hand for guidance in the tumult that is the World , and then as the day dims you meet Him yet again to give Him thanks for the close of another day, resting easy upon His promises… His grace… and His gentle mercies
This way is narrow, this way is not your way, this path unto maturity is only found in the one who holds the keys, the one who has the authority to Judge, the one who has all authority, and it is He who calls you to this path, it is He who lights the path, for it is He that made us Alive and able to take these steps upon this road…

As we embrace the fulness of God, the fulness of our faith, and the fulness of our purpose… we find the Peace that comes with the presence of God, in us and in our lives, finding our identity in Christ…
   and knowing that while here, in His service, the path will never end, always will there be More of Him, to know, to embrace, to see, and to live out. for we are perfected upon this path, growing in our maturity, and growing in our likeness to our Lord and King… Who is the perfector of our Faith!
