Almighty God, the Creator of the universe and lover of our souls, relentlessly pursues us. He desires a relationship with us so much that He pursues us with dogged determination, showing us—in every turn of our journey—who He is and who He has promised to be in His Word.
This 8-session study is designed to:
• Help you recognize God in your everyday life.
• Teach you to document God’s interactions with you. Using the list Who the Bible Says God Is, capture the descriptions given in His Word and how He is showing that to you, personally.
• Help you tell these stories of His activity in an easy and natural way to other people, with God as the main character of the story.
