2 Corinthians 5:17
Today we are going to be closing our series entitled, "Living in Newness of Life" but that only means we are at the end of the series, not at the end of our new life in Christ Jesus.
I want to ask you today not to let this series be another series gone by without life-change. I hope you will take seriously the gift of new life that was purchased at the high price of Christ's shed blood.

1 John 4:17 (NKJV)
17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this wor ...
