What kind of family did you grow up with? As followers of Jesus, we have hope and encouragement that no matter what our earthly family is like, we are invited into a new family with God. In God’s family, everyone is welcomed just as they are. And our sermon today from Dr. Charles Stanley (Moving Toward Maturity): In this message, Dr. Stanley tells us that it was predetermined that we would be saved to grow and conform to the likeness of Jesus Christ. As believers, if we don’t grow, there’s something wrong with us. Dr. Stanley teaches us how to judge, test, and gauge our growth as Christians. He also explains how we can change our conversations, our conduct, and our character.
