"But God forbid that I should glory, save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by who the world is crucified to me, and I unto the world." Gal. 6:14

"A sign you’re growing in grace is praying for our government rather than simply being cynical about our government.

A sign you are growing in grace is that you are more disgusted with your critical spirit than offended by others’ sins."-
Scotty Smith

These excellent words from Pastor Scotty Smith hit hard between the soul and spirit, don't they. But to not look to the Cross of our beautiful Savior would be devastating to our growth. It's only, and only, the grace of Christ, through His death on the Cross that we can have the power of His Spirit to become more like Him, and less like the sinner we are. So, this magnificent quote from the Apostle Paul needs to be first in our hearts, then comes the grueling task of walking in the light and being salt to a world that is dark and has an awful stench of corruption.
