Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be


Basic Christian Life Skills 2:

Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be,
the last of life for which the first was made


John 2:1-11
Hebrews 5:11-14


  • Ageing is normal, spiritual growth is optional but recommended.
  • We are invited to embrace spiritual growth/maturity
  • We are a work in progress
  • Retirement from the Christian life should not be an option
  • We are to tell our children and those who ask about our faith and the reason for it
  • We are to grow in wisdom
  • We will continue to bear fruit
  • The best is yet to be this side and on the other side of our mortal life
