Philipians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
Our knowledge of the kind of love that Jesus had for us, and has for us, is to abound more and more until Jesus Christ appears for us. Brothers, go about growing in God's wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Start and keep walking in great love for your brothers and teach those who have not yet arrived to where you are in spiritual growth.
Brothers, always remember that in your christian walk there will be those who are behind you, and those who are beside you, and those who are ahead of you. God intended it to be this way. We as brothers are to help each other in our christian growth by teaching those have not grown in spirit as you have. I say this to encourage you to receive from your brother and to teach your brothers who are in need to the glory of God the Father.
God Bless you my brothers,
