We are up against sin. It is a war of life and death proportions. We have to see it that way or sin will kill us by leading us to minimize it, thinking, "This can't hurt me. It's just an annoying part of life." But it is that big a deal. It will kill us. And with the Spirit's help we will kill it. And not just that. We will eternally conquer it and enjoy the Father's gifts and his pleasure for all eternity. Listen in. Romans 8:12-17
No one really knew or understood what was going on that week when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. The crowds sang and shouted, but they didn’t really understand. The crowds crowed and called for his crucifixion, but they didn’t really get it. Pilate didn’t understand Jesus. No one, but Jesus understood. And thank God that he did. Because Jesus was condemned, the condemned can go free! Mark 15:1-14.
