Covenant, Old and New

You know, I just love listening to someone who REALLY gets it with God. They live their life, and one day BAM!! It hits her, and she really connects to God.

I grew up in a Christian household and have gone to church since before memory. I went to a parochial grade school. I’ve wandered and returned, but God has always been part of my life.

Then, let the build up to John 1:29 get right into the marrow of your bones, into your soul, and singing praise and thanksgiving with your spirit.

Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29)!

I cannot say I…
