Why does spiritual growth and maturity seem so difficult? We’re not just saved by grace, but able to live by grace, flourishing with the Spirit flowing through us. The Bible is a powerful operator's manual for building a Spirit-filled life in a world where perfection can only be found in God's loving vision for living. Flowing in the Spirit will help us circumvent real-world barriers---pain and sorrow, temptations, self-doubt, sin---so we can flourish even in a dark and broken world.
