Born Again Conduct: Means of Putting Away Sinful Acts and Attitudes

In this message Pastor Jim continues exploring our born again conduct by identifying means of putting away sinful attitudes and actions. This includes three characteristics that are always present in a true desire for God’s Word and growth.

The means of living out this life of holiness is the same means one becomes a Christian – the Word of God. And any spiritual growth begins with desire for the Word.
