Staying Free

Sermon  •  Submitted

This study is to point out the importance of the liberty we have in Christ. Christ as come to set men free from the bondage of sin. In Christ, we are those the ones that actually escaped. Yet the deceptive nature of sin is not something that should be ignored. For this reason, Peter calls for deligence in our pursuit after God by adding to our faith things that will help stay free and guarding our heart with the word of God.

Who we are
