Hey guys am so sorry I haven’t posted in a while I actually don’t have any excuse for that. I was studying with my bible study group and I felt the need to share some things with you all. I hope this adds a lot to your life.

1. What is important to God

God is passionate about the salvation of his children. Finding your identity in Gods word, loving his word and living by his word; and using this knowledge you have gained this new found love to draw in more people to him by serving their interests and ministering his word to them.
