Cast Aside the Green Superhero

A week ago, I was given opportunity to preach at the Church at Ellerslie in Windsor, CO. As we continued in Ephesians 4, we examined verses 26-27. What we discovered is that our lives are not to reflect the Green Superhero – in fact, he is to be cast aside. Not sure who I am referring to? Don’t be frustrated, watch the sermon …
