The God of Last Words

Sunday, May 12, 2019

Our Scripture focus was on 2 Samuel 23:1-7.

Our takeaways were to:

  • Read Week 20 of Coast to Coast readings.
  • CONNECT with God’s Word.
  • DISCOVER the impact the Word of God has on my life.
  • SERVE so that God’s words impact those around me.
  • Pray that I allow God’s word to transform my life.
