  • the commands – Exodus 20:1-3, Deuteronomy 5:7
  • the gospel – John 3:16, 36; 14:6

No distraction can pull His attention away from any of us.
No interruption can keep Him from fulfilling His plans for His chosen ones.

You are number one to God!
Every minute of every day He’s drawing you to Himself.
