“Even before mankind speaks, God is listening.”

The Bible is the story of a God who speaks strong, powerful, comforting, life-giving Words. But this same God is also a God who ​listens​. We were created to live in communion with God, hearing from Him and speaking with Him, but our sin has created a distance between us and God. The story of the Bible is the story of God reconciling His people to Himself so that He can hear us.
