Turning a Mini-Truck Movement into His Own Dream Build
GRANT COX

He wanted to join the mini-truck movement, so he started saving his money so that when he found the right truck, he could buy it and customize it.

I JUST WANT TO BE SEEN

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’” (John 14:5–9 NJKV).
