Die (Dictionary): To pass from physical life; to pass out of existence; to disappear or subside gradually. Die (Bible): To expire, perish, die; fall asleep; gain, advantage; suddenly.

A brother in Christ suggested having a period of time for “refreshing” by reviewing some of the older 7 Minute sermons. I have been writing these short sermons for about 9 years and it would be good to review some the older sermons.

He carries an old, beat-up case filled with......
