Sermons about Legal
We will explore what the Old Testament has to say about how God’s covenant community were to practice social and creational justice. We will ask three questions about this topic. What is justice? Why should we practice justice? How should we “do” justice?
Be committed to your community. Resolve as many disputes as possible within the church. Paul calls for arbitration, not litigation. Admonition: Yield your rights for the sake of unity. Christian community is of higher value to God than winning or being right. Don’t be deceived! Never forget: Heart matters are more important than legal matters.
The writer of Hebrews reminds us of the encouraging wonder of our 'always advocate', Jesus.
Samuel's 'farewell address' to the nation of Israel is yet another reminder from this prophet that to move forward, you must first look backwards.
“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” Once you understand the value of Jesus’ sacrifice, your notion of freedom is forever changed. You’ll discover that the most freeing thing in the world is to give yourself over entirely to the one you love, and this is exactly what happens in the gospel. The good news about Jesus is that he grants us freedom from our toughest struggles, our deepest scars, our strongest doubts, and our biggest fears. When you find Jesus, you find true freedom. ___________________________ The 3rd of 10 sermons in the Emancipation Proclamation Series at Remnant Church in Richmond, Virginia.
