Just as a healthy plant is one that is well-nourished and given loving attention, a healthy faith also requires proper nourishment and devoted care. In his epistles to the various New Testament churches, Paul repeatedly encourages and instructs his brothers and sisters in Christ to give great attention to the nourishment of their faith (2 Pet. 1:3-11; Gal. 6:7-10; 1 Tim. 4:6-10; Col. 1:28-29), as a faith that lacks nourishment and attention will grow starved and weary, just as a sun-scorched plant.
On Sunday, May 31, 2015, Grace Brethren Chapel will begin a new sermon series on the spiritual disciplines, the biblical means of grace for growing and cultivating a well-nourished and devoted faith in Jesus Christ.
