The title of the second panel is “Growing Up.” Having been set free from sin and death by God’s love and grace, our purpose in life is to grow up. The Apostle Paul in his letter to the Ephesians (4:15) says the “we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ”. Growing up into Christ is a lifelong journey – We never tire of learning about the God who loves us and wants us to discover the depths and riches of his love.
This panel reminds us that faith is like a seed planted in good soil. Notice how the gentle hand of God holds the seed and delights in seeing it grow. In order for the seed of faith to grow to its full potential it needs to be nurtured. Ormond Beach Presbyterian Church Disciples gather together on Sunday morning and during the week for bible study and prayer. At the center of the study is engagement with God’s word as we seek to discover how God is speaking to us and challenging us to grow in faith.
