A Workman Approved...

Be dilligent to present yourself approved to God,

a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth

- II Timothy 2:15



















Beginning in January we turned our attention to the Old Testament book of First Kings and the account of God's people as they struggled to serve the Lord who saved them and loved them as a bride.


May God be glorified and His people encouraged by the study of His word!
