Sermon Notes : What It Means Is Up To Me

  • When you access the belief that you are worthless, you start to walk around with your head down – but today is the day that you can throw back your shoulders and say “I believe in resurrection, and I believe in Jesus!”

  • It’s up to me what it means!

  • God is still God even when you feel like you’re in prison.
