Easter: Don’t Forget Jesus (Luke 17:11-19)

People rarely call their insurance agent just to chat. Insurance is something we get in order to protect ourselves from harm. We are glad we have it, but hope we never have to use it. While insurance for a car is good, Jesus does not sell life insurance. Salvation is not a life insurance policy… Continue reading Easter: Don’t Forget Jesus (Luke 17:11-19)
