Focus Scripture: Galatians 4:3-9
No longer slaves. It does seem to be a theme. That's where we at Journey are in our sermon series and that's where the readings take us today. Through Jesus Christ we are no longer slaves, so why do we pull ourselves back into slavery.
Many people are slaves to something, food, anger, fear, alcohol, gambling. The list can go on and on. When we turn to those old patterns and practices we return to slavery to them. Jesus can heal us and we can be set free from the things that enslave us. It is not easy--absolutely not. But with Jesus and the help of others, we can claim and live into our freedom.
Where do you feel the chains of slavery? Where do you need God's help to be free?
