“There is therefore now know condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the spirit, of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own son in the likeness of sinful flesh in for sin, he commended sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the spirit. For those who live according to the flesh, set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who lives according to the spirit set their minds on the things of the spirit. Romans: 8: 1-39.”

“When you hear of my homegoing, don’t worry about me. For I am in a better place where I can rest for eternity. As you go about your lives let the life you live speak for you; getting closer to GOD is the best that you can do. No matter what is said or done after I am gone, just know I’ve found myself a place called HEAVEN and I have made it my new home. Live your life to the fullest and embrace it every day and give your life to Christ and I will surely see you again one day."
