Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

"When do we get there, Daddy?" Many of us have stories about such questions. As Christ followers, when do we get there?

Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God's elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness...
                                                   - Titus 1:1 TNIV

Discipleship is about growing to follow Christ toward maturity. Paul describes his ministry here to young Titus:
1. to further the faith
2. to further the knowledge of truth that leads to godliness

This sounds like a content of faith plus growing lifestyle.

"Further." We're not done. I've heard it said, "You're either growing or dying." I'm not sure about the truth of this, but discipleship-wise, I'm pretty sure it rings true. More? Yes, further!
