Love God, Love Others, Make Disciples
Colossians 2:13-14,
‘You were dead because of your sins and because your
sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you
alive with Christ, for He forgave all our sins.
He canceled the record of the charges against us
and took it away by nailing it to the cross.’
Why Bother?
Romans 5:1-11
