Love Sets Free
Romans 8:1-4 || The Good News (the Gospel!) is that because of Jesus there is NO CONDEMNATION. We are set free from the law of sin and death, where people are judged according to what they do, and brought into the “law” of the Spirit of life, where everything is based upon who you are: FREE!
