Every year we get only so far in our goals, resolutions, and dreams for becoming different. The reality is this: willpower can take us only so far. If we really want to become different, we need God's Spirit and spiritual community. Paul writes about this to the Corinthian church. He asks his readers to dive deep into life with God and his people to make a major difference in the world. This sermon launches the annual theme at Leesburg Grace: Immersed.

During our early years of following Jesus, we commonly experience giant leaps in our spiritual growth. We share our faith. We read the Word. Several vices lose their grip on our hearts. These life changes feel so affirming. And then we hit a plateau, dry spell, relapse, or dark phase. Growth stalls. Doubts surface. Old habits die hard. For most of us, spiritual growth is long, hard, and slow to progress. The Corinthian church will help us understand why (and what to do about it).
