THE WAY OF THE CROSS
Little children, I write to you because you have been forgiven of you sins because of His Name. I write to you, fathers, because you have known Him from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I write to you, young ones, because you have known the Father. I John 2:12,13
The purpose of this class is to understand the stages of growth and the process of growing up unto a full-grown man ...that we henceforth be no more infants.. Ephesians 4:13,14
Discerning Growth Stages:
- Ye shall know them by their fruits... Matthew 7:16a
- Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matthew 7:20
- ...for the tree is known by his fruit. Matthew 12:33c
- ...for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Matthew 12:34b
Growth Stages - three things to note:
- Major area the Holy Spirit is dealing with.
- What they are learning about love.
- What they are learning about the enemy.
- Line upon line - black and white logos.
- General precept (precept = principle intended as a general rule of action).
- Gently stretching the mind.
