Lombard Church Newsletter
Join Us Sunday!
Previously, Peter told us that the result of the sacrifice of Christ should be that humans live holy lives. In this week's text, we are instructed to exercise brotherly love and to grow in all things spiritual until we reach maturity. This is possible only through Jesus. When we give ourselves to Him, he works wonderful changes within us.
