Sermon: Free-Dumb

Scripture: Romans 3:23, John 8:34, Matthew 11:28-30,


REVIEW: This week, we explored the concept of true freedom and how, despite our pursuit of complete freedom, we often end up enslaved by the very things we seek liberation through. We discussed how the apostles identified themselves as slaves of Christ, not because they were forced to, but out of a free will decision to serve Jesus. Therefore, true freedom comes from choosing to serve Christ, not pursuing worldly freedom.

Key Points:

  1. The Illusion of Freedom: Our constant push for more freedom often leads to greater enslavement, whether through technology, work, health, money, or other pursuits.

  2. True Freedom Through Christ: The apostles referred to themselves as slaves of Christ, highlighting a free will decision to serve Jesus. This voluntary servitude brings true freedom, unlike enslavement from pursuing worldly freedoms.

  3. The Yoke of Jesus: Jesus invites us to take His yoke upon us, promising rest and light burdens. True freedom comes from believing in Jesus and submitting to Him wholeheartedly.


APPLY:

  1. Evaluate Your Pursuits:

  • What areas of your life are you pursuing for the sake of freedom but find yourself feeling more enslaved?

  • How can you shift these pursuits to align with serving Jesus instead?

  1. Reflect on Your Servitude:

  • How can you voluntarily submit to Jesus and serve Him in your daily life?

  • How does viewing yourself as a servant of Christ change your perspective on freedom and purpose?

  1. Consider Your Attachments:

  • Are there things in your life that, if removed, would cause you anxiety or stress? These could be indications of areas where you are enslaved.

  • What steps can you take to give God control of these areas and find true freedom in Him?


PRAY: Ask God to help you identify areas where you are pursuing false freedoms and to give you the strength to submit to Him fully. Pray for the wisdom to serve Jesus wholeheartedly and experience the true freedom that comes from being His servant.
