The following sermon, preached on July 2nd, 2017, focuses on how we are free in Christ. Many people think that even though they’re Christians, sin still has a powerful mastery over them. This is not what the Bible teaches. It’s a deception. While it is true that an amputated limb can still have a “ghost itch,” the point of Christianity is NOT to struggle daily with sin. The victory of God is the point! Jesus defeated sin, God is more powerful than sin in your life—tangibly—and herein lies true freedom: That Christ lives in the Christian, and that we are longer slaves to sin! (Romans 6.)
