“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” -2 Corinthians 3:17-18
God accepts each and every person wherever we are, but God does not intend that we stay there. Becoming the people that we are intended to be is a process which involves the practice of various disciplines such as individual and corporate worship, study in groups, personal reflection, and a discipline of stewardship.
