Hope you are well! Last Sunday we learned about the Holy Spirit empowering us in times of persecution at the 9:30 Bible hour and I preached from Romans 6:15-23, “You are a slave of God.” You are owned by Him, to live a life of holiness for Him, and you are destined for eternal life with Him. You can find the sermon above at the SERMON AUDIO tab.
This Sunday we will learn about the work of the Holy Spirit who leads us in Acts 16 at 9:30 am. I will preach from 1 Corinthians 12, “You are part of a body” at 10:30.
