A. Being saved is one thing but God whant’s us to go behond just being saved.
B. If we cooperate with Him we will be sure to find His will for our lives in the pages of His book. This is how God has chosen to communicate His will to us, through the word.
C. If you are in the word then you won’t need someone messing up your hair or yelling in your face to communicate God’s will for your life. YOU CAN LOOK IT UP FOR YOURSELF!!!, IT’S IN THE BOOK!!!
