Sermons on Spiritual Discipline

As Christians, we can have a tendency to lose the passion and motivation we experienced as new believers. When that happens, John gives us three steps we can take to refuel our passion: Remember, Repent, and Return.
Consistent reading of scripture can have a very powerful impact. We pray that you can move from a feeling of obligation and becomes a time of great pleasure.
