Sunday, July 5
It is July 4th weekend, a time when we Americans celebrate our freedoms. We often define freedom as freedom from — freedom from British rule (July 4!), freedom from rules by parents, freedom from worries. But a biblical definition of freedom is just as much about freedom FOR something as it is freedom FROM something. The freedom we have in Christ is freedom from death and sin; but also freedom for serving him and caring for our neighbor. Pastor Rob moves from unpacking this dual understanding of biblical freedom to applying it to our lives today.
The main preaching passage is Matthew 11:25-30 with references to Exodus 9.
