Grow in Grace and Knowledge
But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. To grow means something is increasing or developing in size by a natural process. Growing in grace is allowing the Divine influence to work upon the heart, which then reflects in the life. Changes will take place in conversation, appearance and lifestyle. These changes will not be seen all at once, but continue to develop by a natural process.
Father Excelent article as always. I want to ask you a question even if it is an off topic because i'm in serious need. I was at confession. After i said my sins the priest asked me if i read the Gospels and i said yes, even if i don't do it on regular basis but i have read them before and on the very same day. Now, in the moment when i said "yes" i said "yes" because i didn't want to say "no", and i taught of myself as not reading the Gospels on a regular basis. Later it occured to me that i in fact read the Gospels that same day and i asked myself:"Was this a lie? Or i just didn't remember in that given moment that i have read the Gospels?

Mercy is not getting what you deserve.
