Who Am I? Day Two

IDENTIFY Read Luke 5:1-11. First, notice the kind of men Jesus called. They were not perfect men. Peter made that very clear in verse 8 when he admitted to Jesus that he was a sinful man. These men were just fishermen, uneducated working guys making their way in a...

Who Am I? Day One

TRUTH Read Genesis 2:15-25. God made man in His image and put Him in the Garden of Eden. Why? Not to prune roses and sniff daffodils, but to work and to keep what He created. To work is to subdue and cause to thrive through faithful tending. To keep is to guard,...
