Christ, God’s son, is uniquely revealed in God’s word
How do we know lyrics and jingles so well? It’s because we’re exposed so much to them. What about God’s word??? How well can you finish a verse?

v1 Blessed (happy) is the person who
Is your delight in the sinner’s way, or in God’s way?
v3 Being rooted in God’s word will cause us to prosper spiritually, to bear good fruit, to be spiritually resilient.

GODS WORD CHANGES. TRANSFORMS. FEEDS YOUR SOUL. SPIRITUAL FLOURISHING WILL OCCUR. BE ROOTED IN HIS WORD!!!
