Speaker: Jon Kopp - In His creative wisdom, God has designed trees to grow by several means. Soil, sunlight, and water all work together over time to bring a seedling to maturity. In the same way, God has designed that His people will grow to maturity through specific means. Unlike a tree, however, we have the ability to choose whether or not we will cooperate with God’s work. While He is the great Cultivator, He expects us to diligently do our part for spiritual growth.
