3. Let the word of God nourish you
Scripture Reference: Jeremiah 15:16
Jesus wants us to live lives that line up with his word.
The word of God gives us a new identity, showing us who we are and who we aren’t, and leading us to a place where we no longer give ourselves over to the things of this world.
God provides for us, forgives us, and knows us more deeply than we can understand. He asks us to simply respond to him.
