Freedom from the Past
Scripture References: Galatians 1:13-24
From Series: "Freedom"
This sermon series from Imprint Church in Woodinville was based on the book of Galatians in the New Testament. In our “Freedom” series, we looked at what the author Paul has to say about gaining our freedom in Jesus Christ. Some of us are not free. We don’t feel free. We may even try to gain our freedom through sacrifices like going to church, praying, or serving, but we still don’t have a deep sense of freedom. And while we may not think of some of these things as sacrifices we make to be free, somewhere in our hearts there is a hiccup that tells us that we owe something to God in order for him to really accept us. The idea that we have to “fight for our freedom” is ingrained in us. Or maybe you’re a Christian and already believe you are saved by grace (not works), but then you “move on” to deeper things after the initial grace of Jesus receives you and lose sight of those beautifully simple gift. Our goal in this sermon series is to set you free from the bondage of works based religion and acceptance.
