I started this study the summer of 1993. Jan Batten went through it with me. She was a busy mama as well but she set aside the time to disciple me. I will be forever grateful and we are still friends to this day. I love you, Jan.
I learned several things through this study.
“God always has a purpose for the grief He brings or allows to come into our lives. Most often we do not know what that purpose is, but it is enough to know that His infinite wisdom and perfect love have determined that the particular sorrow is best for us. God never wastes pain.” Page 102
“Calvary is the one objective, absolute, irrefutable proof of God’s love for us.” Page 138
“. . . as Matthew Henry observed when commenting on Zephaniah 3:17, ‘The great God not only loves His saints, but he loves to love them.’” Page 142
I think I will stop there and talk about the other two books in my next post. This last picture is for you, Kacey!
my brother, Jim and me (1964)
Happy laughing, you all!
