    Part VI in the series - 24. This is a first person narrative account from the perspective of the penitent thief on the cross. The preaching idea: Only by the innocence of Christ are the guilty set free.

    Introduction… My prayer is that over the past six weeks that those of you who have been present for this series of sermons have been moved by the stories that we have experienced. One of the great things about preaching – is that before the message ever gets to you I’ve spent hours and hours ...read more
