Keys to Effective Spiritual Growth

2nd Week of Study --Week 1 in the Survival Kit. Whether you are a new Christian or a long-time Christian, you need the fellowship of other Christians to continue your spiritual growth. The theme for this weeks study is "One Body—It’s Life and Service. This week’s memory verse is Romans 12:4-5 – "For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another." This compares the functioning of the many parts that make up the physical body with the functioning of the many members that make up the body of Christ.
