I am a Christian family man, Lay Pastor and writer from Deep East Texas. I love life, and I enjoy working with young people. I have published two books; "A Small Mind Among Tall Trees" and "God If You Are Not Too Busy, Can You Give Me a Hand". If you want to obtain a copy drop me an e-mail or go to or barnesand . I have been a salesman, cowman and athlete in my past. I still have a strong sense of humor and am not afraid to use it.

Romans 8:1-4

Relax, Read and Reflect
Prayer- Lord, Open our hearts and open our minds and help us learn. Go-Fight-Win. Amen

1Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,[

] 2because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. 3For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature,[b] God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering.[c] And so he condemned sin in sinful man,[d] 4in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.
"You are free to Go!" Imagine you are a convicted criminal sentenced to life in prison, or even death, and you are told "you are free to go." We, as a human are condemned to a life of sin, of judgement of the law. As the saying goes- "Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time," meaning be prepared to be punished if you break the law.
Here is the good news; Jesus did the time for us. Our debt has been paid. No longer does the law of the world have us in bondage. We are free to go!
Prayer- Lord, Thank you for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to pay for our sinfull human nature. Help us live our lives according to Your Spirit. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
