Guide for "Freedom Season"
April 14 - May 29, 2019
We all want to be free. We work for it, fight for it, even die for it, because we see it as the basis for everything else we want--free choices, opportunities, and pleasures. In our dreams we would be kings so we could afford whatever we want to do and no one could ever tell us what we have to do. That would be freedom, we suppose.
Jesus brings freedom, but not as we imagine it. He says freedom is not the freedom to indulge our desires but the freedom to lay down our lives for the good of others like he did. We find true freedom by giving up selfish freedom.
This risky trade comes with a guarantee, and it is the resurrection of Jesus. That is the game-changer in the story of freedom.
