Unmet expectations

I am blessed to be participating in a book launch. That means I’m reading the book, interacting with the author, and promoting it on social media.

The Living Word

I love the vision of Scripture being breathed out by God. Remember the Bible verse from Job on Monday’s post. If breath is life, and Scripture is breathed out by God, then (I believe) that’s one of the reasons we see Scripture as the Living Word. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable
