Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

free indeed...

free indeed

There is another kind of freedom...
one that brings the Lord's peace
and joy within.
This is freedom from the bondage of sin.

Now that is freedom.

For if the guilt of sin be so great
that nothing can satisfy it
but the blood of Jesus;
and the filth of sin be so great
that nothing can fetch out the stain thereof
but the blood of Jesus,
how great, how heinous,
how sinful must the evil of sin be!”

- William Bridge

Either sin is with you,
lying on your shoulders,
or it is lying on Christ,
the Lamb of God.
Now if it is lying on your back,
you are lost;
but if it is resting on Christ,
you are free, and you will be saved.”

- Martin Luther
