He Don’t Live Here Anymore

1 Peter 4:1-6 Jesus suffered for us, so we don’t have to live the way we used to live.  Now it’s time to be done with that old life.  Your friends may not understand why you won’t do the things you used to do.  Because of your witness, they too can know Christ.  

Guess Who Wins
