This past Sunday was a wonderful experience! We celebrated Christ through a time of worship, worked through Romans 6:20-23 and witnessed 4 baptisms! I was exhausted at the end of the day, but it was a good exhaustion. As I have reflected over those events I am reminded that as a church we are in the business of making disciples.
Two weeks back we started a sermon series from Romans covering chapters 6-8. This is indeed a heavy theological section and the main point throughout these chapters is sanctification. Remember, sanctification is strictly focused on the power of sin in the believers life. When Paul states in Romans 6 that sin is dead, he is talking about the power of sin. Obviously we have sin in our livers and unfortunately at times that becomes easy to identify. So, why are we spending three months working through this issue of sanctification?
Our Pastor writes most of the blog posts we publish, however, occasionally some of our other church leadership (some staff, some volunteer) who also contribute to the New Life blog.
