You were taught,

with regard to your former way of life,

to put off your old self,

which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;

to be made new in the attitude of your minds;

and to put on the new self,

created to be like God

in true righteousness and holiness.


Rev. Franklin Graham is conducting a 50-state tour – PRAY, VOTE, and ENGAGE –  of the country.  Tomorrow, Wednesday, he will be in Baton Rouge for a prayer rally.  If you would like be join him, be at North Boulevard Town Square, about three blocks from the Mississippi River, at noon.  I think it will be an event you will remember the rest of you lives.  I have wonderful memories of attending Rev. Billy Graham’s crusade meeting. If you can attend Wednesday’s event, you’ll surely be blessed, encouraged, and motivated.
