Your Own Worst Enemy

September 19th, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Psalm 54 (in which David laments a betrayal), and Mark 9 (in which the disciples argue about who is the greatest). We are all our own worst enemies, rebelling against God and seeking to be in charge. Thankfully, Christ comes for his enemies: sinners.

Cleaner than Clean

Bound to Jesus
