These resources have been created through many hours of obedience, prayer, study and teaching. They are to be used as tools to activate the Word of God in your life. Of course, the Word of God is already "living and active." (Heb. 4:12) But, it will never be alive and active in your life until it is obeyed, prayed over, studied, and spoken out by you. (James 1:22-25) My desire is that you would experience real transformation and intimacy in your relationship with Jesus as His Words become alive in your life. Remember, as you use these resources, the ultimate purpose should be in pursuing a person - God himself - rather than pursuing a book or resources about a book. May you be drawn closer into deep fellowship with your Creator and Lover, Jesus Christ. May your pursuit of him be richly rewarded, just as he has promised you. (Heb. 11:6)
