Series: Life by the Book
Life By The Book: that's the title of our series from Psalm 119. This entire psalm focuses on the Word of God and it's important that we live our lives and direct our paths according to the Bible.

If you ask God to give you a new passion for the Word, then He will, you just have to ask for it.
