Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above,
where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:1-3

Knowing God's Word #1

Chapter 1: Will This Be on the Test?

On our spiritual journey for the next twelve weeks or so, we're studying Knowing God's Word, a Women of Faith Study Guide (foreward by Luci Swindoll). Through studying this book, we will:
  • understand the reason we need to learn Scripture by heart and recall it every day;
  • learn what's important in life and what isn't;
  • be encouraged to have goals that are not only right, but also righteous (p. vi).
Chapter One Memorable Quote:

Bibles are "so commonplace, so readily available, that I think we sometimes forget just what we hold in our hands" (p 13).
