The new year begins for the Christian Calendar on this Sunday, November 28th. So, happy new year! It is the beginning of Advent. A time where we reflect on the coming of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ ---- and prepare our hearts and minds for his coming. I will be preaching on Romans 13.11-14. Verse 14 says: "Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires." There are points in our lives where we make ridiculous statements like: "I need to go and find myself." How does that kind of statement jive with: "Put on the Lord Jesus Christ"? Can you still be yourself and put on the Lord Jesus Christ?
