Sermons about Sabbath
Insights and encouragement as we begin a time of Sabbath and renewal, Rev. Mansell and his family personally and John Knox Presbyterian as a church.

Peter expects Christians to develop an self-control as they surrender their whole selves (body, mind, will) to Jesus.
In this sermon we look Jesus' response to questions regarding the Sabbath.
