Please take the opportunity to watch or listen to the awesome sermon by Gateway Church in Austin. More churches should take this non-condemning and loving approach towards those of us who struggle with sexual purity!
“If your significant other comes to you today and confesses [to sexual impurity] will you not shame them? They’re already dealing with it [shame] so much right now and they need to hear that they’re loved. They took a brave and courageous step and Jesus is not going to shame them so why should we?”
Each of us has been ensnared or enslaved in one way or another, and no matter how hard we try we can’t do anything to free ourselves. The amazing truth is that we don’t have to because Jesus came, died and rose again to bring us freedom! Through Him we’re no longer slaves to the past — the things we’ve done or the things done to us, so how can we learn to live as free people?
In our last message of this series, you’ve heard specifically about freedom from pornography, yet the freedom offered in Christ applies to any and all areas that may ensnare or enslave us. Work through the following questions on your own, and get together with your running partner, Life Group, or friends and family around the dinner table to talk through what you’re learning about living as free people!
