TAT: Saved For Good by Poporetto TAT: Saved For Good by Poporetto
Knowing that we have been saved, why do we still want to live the way we used to be? If we still want to live our old life, why bother asking for salvation?
Itís hard to live for Christ, but letís not living dual identity in this life. If weíre christians, letís live like Christ without looking back

Colossians 3:1-3

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

oh my gosh, you replied!

lol, I'm quite surprised, it takes only a few seconds to reply, and you're posting your work to groups for the exposure, right?

But I'm not gonna tell ya what to do or nothin'. It's your choice.

Thank you for replying to my comment ^_^!

not really and not always, I don't always do that for exposure, I mean I draw comics for enjoyment and when it has christian theme I wish I can share it with other people. But I do admit that I'm not always online especially because i work full time and I serve at church on my spare time so I don't reply comments most of the time 

sorry again :) please dont feel offended, but there is not much i can do :(

might be better then to disable comments on your deviations?? I mean since you're too busy to answer them anyways. This is just a question though, nothing more; because like i said, it's really up to you. There are countless others on DA who leave comments up and never really reply to anyone. I mean I think it's rude, but that's just my personal opinion, and certainly doesn't go towards other people, you know? So yeah, I'm not trying to make waves or anything, just curious if it might be something you'd want to try.
