This sermon series is about the lifestyle of the gospel. It is tempting to think that the beginning of developing a Christian lifestyle is all about learning the rules. What can a Christian do, and what can’t they. But the Bible never approaches the way we live that way. You can’t develop a Christian lifestyle until you settle the foundation.
