    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.

One of the great things about preaching – is that before the message ever gets to you I’ve spent hours and hours ...read more
