Are You Tied Up or Free in Your Worship? (3 of 7)
1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
2 Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. 3 Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. 4 You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. 5 But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness for which we hope. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Gal 5:1-6 (NIV)
36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:33-36 (NIV)
As we've looked at what worship means these past weeks we've seen that worship is a HEART thing, it's all about Jesus...
Then last week we saw that worship must be in Spirit and Truth...and God helps us in this because He gives us the Holy Spirit.
This morning, I want us to turn to some of the aspects of worship...and since this is Independence Sunday, there's no better time to look at this particular aspect...the aspect of FREEDOM.
Let's do something this morning...
Let's start by answering a Question:
What is freedom?
In other words, what does 'freedom' mean to you?
Would some of you share your thoughts on that?
(Ok...those are all good.)
Now, let's see what that has to do with worship...
let's look at that also...
what does 'freedom' in worship mean to you?
Get in a group with some of those around you,
and talk about two things...
FIRST...when was a time you felt really uncomfortable
in a worship service...
and SECOND, what does 'freedom in worship' mean to you?
Then, we'll share a bit. Pause for a few moments.
Would some of you share?
