God Increases, We Decrease...[121]

If you point these things out to the brothers, you will he a good minister of Jesus Christ, brought up in the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed.
[1 Timothy 4:6]

One of the key responsibilities in the Christian life is to realise that "I am responsible!"

The Lord holds us responsible and gives us the constant choice of how far we will follow Him and His ways. To be spiritually nourished we need to have a daily programme to achieve this end.

We must first 'nourish our own selves' before we contact, approach or minister to other people. Notice the two areas mentioned where we need to be nourished and feed from:
  1. On the truths of the faith. Reading, studying, meditating and memorising.
  2. On good Christian instruction. "
"My food," said Jesus, "Is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work." [John 4:34]

He has lost connection with the Head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow. [Colossians 2:19]

~ Nourish and invest in yourself ~
