                1 John 3.1
    See what great love the Father has
 lavished on us, that we should be called
             children of God!

14…no longer be infants, tossed back and forth
by the waves, and blown here and there by
every wind of teaching and by the cunning and
craftiness of people in their deceitful
scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love,
we will grow to become in every respect the
mature body of him who is the head, that is,
Christ.

 I'm not sure that God particularly wants us to be
happy. I think He wants us to be able to love and
 be loved. He wants us to grow up [C.S. Lewis 1955]


 God wants us to love and be loved. He wants
us to grow up. He wants each of us to make our
  unique contribution to his world. [G. Wilton 2011]

    What do you think that we need to do
 to grow as a disciple-making community?

Teresa of Avila

Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do
good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all
the world.

v.22 Let us draw near to God

v. 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope that
      we profess
v.24 Let us consider how we may spur one
      another on towards love and good deeds
v.25 Let us not give up meeting together, as
      some are in the habit of doing
v.26 Let us encourage one another
