A death sacrifice,
Now, free to live apart from sin.
My life is rendered perfectly lived.

If we have a firm understanding of the gospel--this joy-infused gospel--this gospel that makes peace between God and man, then there is no circumstance that we could not face in light of the joy we have in Christ.

This is a gift we receive by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9).Read More
