Friday, December 25

Now that we have moved beyond the primary doctrine about the Christ, let us press on to maturity.—Heb. 6:1.

 

This does not happen automatically. We need to “press on,” or keep working at it. Growing to maturity involves advancing to an increased level of knowledge and insight. That is why we have repeatedly been encouraged to read a portion of the Bible daily. (Ps. 1:1-3) Have you made that a personal goal? Doing such reading can give you greater insight into Jehovah’s laws and principles and a deeper understanding of God’s Word. The foremost law for Christians is the law of love. Jesus told his disciples: “By this all will know that you are my disciples—if you have love among yourselves.” (John 13:35) Jesus’ half brother James called love “the royal law.” (Jas. 2:8) Paul said: “Love is the law’s fulfillment.” (Rom. 13:10) This emphasis on love is not surprising, since the Bible tells us that “God is love.”—1 John 4:8. w18.06 19 ¶14-15

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

The pressing on and moving forward is vital , I have always loved the book of James , his way of speaking .

 

I love James 2 v 19 - " You believe there is one god, you are doing quite well ! the demons believe this and shudder " James sounds almost sarcastic , believing is not enough Faith requires works and spiritual progression .

 

staying still is not moving forward, I know I forget that sometimes and get complacent .
