The Extravagant Promises of God
4 Studies in 4 Great Promises
Our God is a God who speaks, and as the Apostle Peter says in chapter 1 of his second letter in the New Testament, “he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature.” (2 Peter 1:4).
These 4 studies take us to just four of the extravagant promises of God, though there are many others to which we could turn!
