Why do we struggle with the same old things? Why do we find ourselves breaking that vows we made to God and ourselves? Are we destined to go round and round, living in the fear of our future and the shame of our past? Is living in a constant state of recovery all there is, or is there something more? Over the next three weeks we will be looking through the lens of John 8:31-36 at three different people who experienced more than recovery, they underwent true transformation. I would like to invite you to join us on Sunday mornings as God’s word uncovers the truth about who we are in Christ and the freedom and joy we can experience regardless of what going on around us. “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).
John 8:31-36 (Theme Verses)
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?”
34 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. 35 Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
