Sermon from 20 March 2022

Sermon Title: “What Is Forgiveness? How Do I Get It? How Do I Give? What Does It Cost?”
Pastor: Doug Miller
Scriptures: John 1:19-31
Synopsis: In this passage we are introduce by John The Baptist to “the Lamb of God”. His listeners are confused but over time they will come to understand this lamb is not an animal but a person. Jesus Christ has come to take away the sin of the world. No longer would the Israelites need to kill a lamb and shed it’s blood to take away their sin, instead Jesus becomes the lamb to take away all the sin of all the people.
