Today Perry and Shawna the freedom Jesus gives us when we look through the lens of the gospel. First we talk about what God is up to when life blind side us, how pain is God’s “megaphone” to rouse us to what he is doing. He is making us just like him through the pain. Then Shawna of failing, feeling condemned and unwanted, feeling like she shouldn’t trust anyone. And how the truth that there is “no condemnation for those who are in Christ,” is setting her free!
And finally Perry shares how even though we have been set free in Jesus, we can still live with a slave mentality: Thinking we have to earn God’s favor, thinking that God is frowning on us, failing so often that we just give up and give in to sin. We counter that slave mentality with the truth the transforms these poisonous thoughts. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free! Galatians 5:1.
