0 9 7 "The Cry for Liberation"
John 8:31-36
Introduction: Quote Ac/Dc Song Jailbreak (Circus Magazine).
We are living in a day that is showered with the cries of
liberation. People want to be free!
The words of the song I quoted, the cries of rebellion among
youth and adults(Don't tell me what to do are cries of
rebellion and what they are saying is set me free), Women-
wanting to be free, homosexuals wanting to be free, and
even the rig'nts of diwldren signify that Amnerica's greatest
desire is to be free.
T.S. The text I read a moment ago is a proclamation of lib-

(32) Know-certainty of it that Jesus is the real thing.
(33) Not enslaved to anyone or anthing.
(34) Jesus said everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.

(35) Being a slave to sin is temporary with eternal damna-

(36) Free indeed-in fact and practice we are free.
Since Jesus is the truth we need to understand lostness and
and being saved. Heaven and hell!

b. Identity problem-Many of us are never content with
being ourselves, we try to be something we want to
be or what others want us to be, rather than being
*It is OK to be you! You don't need to try to be
like anyone else. Stop trying to be something you
Identity Crisis-Many here today have become to being
enslaved to being something we are not! When this
occurs we will live a life of compromise!
2. Jesus wants to set us free from our sin.
