Watch Your Life: Session 2

Feeding on Christ

It would be easy to think that the Bible is simply a book of information about God and life, and that we need to read it in order to know what to believe and how to behave. That’s true, but the Bible is so much more than information. It brings transformation. For a leader to thrive, bear fruit, and persevere for a lifetime of ministry, a leader needs to regularly feed themselves on Christ by meditating on the Word of God.
