A personal note from Brett:
I thank God for the difference that Jesus has made in my life. He helps me to be a better husband, better father and better neighbor. I thank God for the truth. I thank God for His Word that tells me when I'm right and when I'm wrong. I thank God for the forgiveness of sins through Jesus' blood and the confident expectation of making heaven my home throughout eternity.
My hope is that our humble efforts on Let the Bible Speak can play a part in helping you to find all the blessings that Jesus died for you to experience. Living for Jesus as a faithful member of the body of Christ will give you meaning like nothing this world has to offer. I hope to see you this Sunday morning.
