refinement… a life unfolding…

Life in Christ… begins a journey… marked first by baptism… a surrender… to something new…

Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. …”
John 3:5-6
ESV

Just born… a life unfolding

a spiritual babe… hungry…

a diet of milk… moves only to meat… with growth… maturity…

Refinement… through hardship… the road to maturity… obedience

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
James 1:2-4
How is your life unfolding these days?
Finding joy in the growing pains?
Or… Are you refusing to grow up?
