know his voice - august

This month marks the fourth month of phase three of our Know His Voice project. In this phase, we’re centering each day’s reading on something Jesus said about a specific topic or something said about what Jesus did in light of a certain subject. Read and reflect on the following passages this month and get to “know his voice” better!
