For, for this intent have we written these things, that they may know that we knew of Christ, and we had a hope of his glory many hundred years before his coming; and not only we ourselves had a hope of his glory, but also all the holy prophets which were before us. —Jacob 4:4
Feasting on the words of Christ will bring life-sustaining revelation, reaffirm our true identity and worth before God and His child, and lead our friends unto Christ and everlasting life. —Takashi Wada
