Dead or Alive

“For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.”  (Romans 6:10-11, ESV) How should we deal with sin in our lives? Or perhaps even more to the point,... Continue Reading →
