Lesson 20 - Growing as a Christian

The more we know Jesus, the more we long to be like Him. As we understand Jesus’ kindness, His tender compassion, His gracious forgiveness, and His steadfast loyalty to the Father’s will, our own hearts are drawn to the one we most admire. The Christian life involves both coming to Jesus and growing in Jesus. It involves forgiveness and restoration. Jesus longs to forgive our sins, removing the guilt and condemnation of the past. His acceptance, forgiveness, and love help us to grow in Him. He desires to rebuild our lives. In this lesson we will learn God’s way of making us whole again.
