Sermons about Slavery
“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 4th of 10 sermons in the Emancipation Proclamation Series at Remnant Church in Richmond, Virginia.

An Exposition of Galatians 2:11-21.
Opportunities for slavery and sin are all around us. If we are to live by the Spirit, we must learn to resist slavery on a daily basis.
“A seemingly contradictory statement that may nonetheless be true.”
Paul continues his argument that there are only two types of people -- those for whom sin is master and those for whom God is master. You will be a slave to one or the other. On the one hand, slavery to sin may yield temporary pleasure, but its fruit is full of shame and ultimately produces only death. On the other hand, slavery to God produces the fruit of the Spirit, sanctification, and ultimately eternal life. This is ours, as a free gift from God, and we who have received life are fools to return to the old master, sin, who can give us only shame and death.
