Hebrews tells us Christ ‘did away with sin’ on the cross. Paul tells us our righteousness is a free gift. Jesus says we have been set free from the prison of sin. If Jesus has set us free, why do we want to lock ourselves up again? In Romans…

The New “Way, Truth and Life”.

When Jesus said “I am the Way the Truth and the Life”, he was saying to the Jews that he was the new temple his Father dwelled. He was saying the Father no longer dwells in the Temple. This means heaven was leaving the Old Covenant of the Law. Unknown to many Jesus was saying…
