What the Word of God Does For Us

by | October 24, 2022

Last week we posted this video on YouTube talking about a project we’ve been working on for a little while, and in that video, I talked about a message our pastor (Garvan Walls) had preached earlier this year that really inspired me. It was titled “What the Word of God Does For Us” and in this message, he listed 40 benefits of reading, listening, and applying His truth to our hearts. 

I cannot tell you how many people reached out asking for a print out of this, so I thought I would just post it here. Take a couple minutes to read through this, and I know you will be challenged to dive into God’s word even deeper.

Be encouraged.
