“Overwhelmed, Resurrected, Unbound” – – Rev. Mereschuk – – April 2, 2017

“Overwhelmed, Resurrected, Unbound” Rev.

Repentance breaks the cycle of sin-confess-sin-confess-repeat. If we are going to confess, then we also need to repent. Repentance calls us to change, and we know that it is not always easy to change. But if we are to lay our burdens down and walk away on a different path, then we must also repent.
