Building My Life On The Bible - Accountability

Read James 1:22. We only believe the parts of the Word that we do. If that's true, what would the people around you say that you believe this week?

What part still needs some work?

Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in following God's Word in all that you say and do. Ask and receive the forgiveness He offers through Christ.
