Sermon

No Longer a Burden

May 9th, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 1 John 5, in which John claims that the commandments of God are not burdensome. How can this be true when we are so aware of our sin? Faith makes the difference, but not faith in ourselves. We place our faith in Jesus, the righteous one who bears our burdens.

Jesus Helps Your Unbelief
