    S I N -- it is a word we don’t like to use anymore in our churches.

    The “S” Word There is a three letter word that we don’t like to say in churches. The rest of the world uses this word all the time, but we don’t. It makes Christians feel uncomfortable. It makes us feel dirty. Maybe ashamed. Or embarrassed. The word is S – I – ...read more

    We cannot be worthy of Christ’s love and sacrifice, but the Bible DOES encourage us to WALK IN A MANNER WORTHY of Christ. We walk on two legs -- education of God’s Word, and action for God.
