The Cruciform Life

We are beginning a new sermon series this morning that will run through Easter Sunday. We are calling it the cruciform life, meaning how can our lives be shaped by the cross. We are looking at various aspects of life, things such as forgiveness, dealing with evil, and finally, on Easter Sunday, being shaped by the resurrection. This morning we are exploring the theme of being shaped by freedom. We are looking at a passage from Paul’s letter to the Galatians, Galatians 5:1-15. And we will explore this from two perspectives. First we will look at the power of freedom. Verse 1 states that it was for freedom that Christ has set us free. And then we are commanded to stand firm in our freedom. The second point is the purpose of freedom, which vv.13-14 tell us is love. We were built and designed to love. Again, there are many misguided notions as to what love is so we can let the fear of some of these false definitions keep us from embracing the call of these verses. Being shaped by freedom through the cross will lead to a life of love.
