Fourth of July weekend is a great time to bring your church together to celebrate freedom. What’s even better, however, is that you have the opportunity to guide your congregation to seeing this holiday through the eyes of faith. There are certainly a great number of directions you can take as you approach this topic of freedom including:
- Freedom from the power of sin
– Old habits
– Sexual immorality
- Freedom from the penalty of sin
– Jesus’ victory
– Jesus’ sacrifice
- Freedom from the presence of sin
– Heaven / Hell
- What Christ set us free for
– For freedom
– Freedom from trying to earn salvation
– Freedom from pleasing people
I wanted to curate a few items for you to help you plan for this service. I’m including a few sermons from our sister site SermonSearch.com that may help give you a direction to take as you prepare your own message. I’m also including some media from WorshipHouse Media to add to your service. You will find a few video illustrations that might help bring a little punch to the point of your message. I’m also including a few background slides you can use to display your sermon notes, announcements, and worship lyrics.
Our Freedom in Christ by Jesse Hendley
This is a great sermon that focuses in on Galatians 4:31-5.1 which says, “So, brothers, we are not children of the slave but of the free woman. For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” I love the way Jesse focuses in on how vital freedom is to the very core of who God created us to be. This sermon is a great option for you to study.
A Miracle for America by Adrian Rogers
In this sermon, Adrian pulls no punches. He lays out his thoughts, and his insights to being a patriot, and some of the core problems we face in America today. This sermon has a good message to study during your prep work.
A Celebration of Freedom by Roger Thomas
Roger gets straight to the point in this sermon. He asks the poignant question, “What will you do with your freedom?” This is a question all of us must answer, because Christ truly has set us free. This sermon will help you focus your message as you prepare to preach a message on freedom.
