John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone.

Beginning in 2008 the vision and bible school that God so graciously gave Wade Taylor beginning in 1968 came to an abrupt end, falling into the ground and dying.

We now wait for God to raise up and bring forth His seed of promise in another, that the vision fail not.

Leaving Our Spiritual Comfort Zone
Penny Smith

There are various processings which the Lord employs to bring us into spiritual maturity. Our spiritual age is not measured chronologically, but experientially. It is a matter of spiritual hunger and how committed and obedient we are.

Just as there are those who for one reason or another, never reach a level of maturation which coincides with their physical growth, there are born again Christians who remain immature, or under-developed.

Not everyone will go "all the way" with the Lord, and therefore they are under-developed in certain areas of their spiritual being. This means that they have not grown towards the measure and stature of Christ at the pace in which they could have grown.

The miracle is that our Lord is a God of new beginnings. We can, this very moment, be forgiven for the shortcomings of the past and begin a life of commitment and obedience to Him.

The Lord is waiting to take us further.
