Grounded in Truth & Growing in Grace

In Psalm 1:3 the person whose delight is the law of the Lord is compared to a tree planted by streams of water. Fresh streams result in fruitful seasons and healthy growth. Being Grounded in Truth & Growing in Grace provides the same spiritual benefits. The constant stream of truth from God’s word, coupled with His grace provides healthy spiritual growth - Christ in us, the result of the cross. Truth and grace are essential ingredients as we seek to make disciples of one another at LJBC and of others within our sphere of influence.

‘A Pictures Is Worth A Thousand Words’

‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ is an adage in multiple languages,’ meaning that sometimes a visual can better communicate what words might lack. Leonardo Da Vince is credited with saying, a poet would be "overcome by sleep and hunger before [being able to] describe with words what a painter is able to [depict] in an instant.”’God has given us multiple pictures in the Scriptures that depict different aspects of salvation, and the pictures that He gave us speak volumes. Among them one finds: baptism, the Lord’s Supper, the Jewish Passover, Noah’s ark, Old Testament animal sacrifices, marriage, the contrast between light and dark. Each ‘picture’ emphasizes unique aspects of God’s provision. Join others as we continue to be Grounded in Gruth and Growing in Grace through worship and the study of God’s word.
