know his voice

This month at MoSt Church we continue to center our Bible reading each day around our Know His Voice project. This project's reading consists of something Jesus said about a specific topic, something said about what Jesus did in light of a certain subject or a record in the Gospels dealing with a specific theme. So, read and reflect on the following passages this month and get to “know his voice” better. Consider the verse in in parenthesis at the end of each day’s reading as a suggestion as to a good verse to come back to again and again throughout the day in contemplation.
