Christ In Every Book!!


I was doing some studying today for a message and came across this amazing quote tucked away in a reference book on my shelf. This brought a tear to my eye and an awe in my outlook of who our great Savior is! Enjoy…

    Amen! It always blesses me to see the Living Savior breathing in His word. Every part of the word of God speaks something of Him and redemption for the lost. As we see more of Him in the word, He will change us and make us like Him. Thanks for this wonderful post. Keep up the hard work.
