I. INTRODUCTION

A. “SAVING PRIVATE RYAN”, A HOLLYWOOD
PRODUCTION THAT FOCUSES ON THE
HORRORS OF WAR.

1. OFTEN WE GLAMORIZE WAR.

2. SUPPOSEDLY THIS MOVIE COMES
CLOSEST TO DEPICTING WAR IN A
MORE REALISTIC LIGHT.

3. WE MUST REMEMBER. IT IS STILL
HOLLYWOOD.

4. ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN ON
THE BATTLE FIELD CAN TELL YOU
WHAT IT REALLY IS LIKE. MOST OF
THEM DON’T TALK ABOUT IT VERY
MUCH.

B. THE MOST HORRIBLE WAR FOUGHT BY
AMERICANS WAS THE CIVIL WAR.

1. THIS WAR PITTED FAMILY

MEMBERS, FRIENDS AGAINST
FRIENDS, OUR COUNTRYMEN AND
WOMEN AGAINST EACH OTHER.


2. IT WAS ALMOST THE DESTRUCTION

2. TODAY, WE WANT TO TAKE A MORE
IN DEPTH LOOK AT THIS PASSAGE
AS WE BEGIN A MESSAGE SERIES ON
“THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT.”

E. ONE OF THE BASIC NEEDS OF MAN IS TO
LOVE AND BE LOVED.


1. I BELIEVE TODAY A CASUALTY OF
THE CIVIL WAR WITHIN US IS
INTERFERENCE WITH OUR ABILITY
TO ACCEPT LOVE AND GIVE LOVE
THE WAY GOD INTENDED IT.

2. THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM AND
THE SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM
ARE BOTH FOUND, I BELIEVE, IN
THIS PASSAGE.

II. THE CHALLENGE. VS. 13-15.

A. OUR CHALLENGE, FIRST, IS TO LIVE IN
LIBERTY. VS. 13a.

1. LIBERTY IS FOUND IN A
RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.

a. JESUS SAID IN JOHN, “YOU
SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH ...
