What a weekend! My husband brought a powerful word that I think I would put in my top ten favorite sermons of all time. We are in week 2 of our series, This is Your Permission Slip. It is a series about the liberties found in Christ, how God is a God of permission, not restriction.
This weekend the sermon was based out of 2 Corinthians 1:19-20 where we learned that God is a YES God. My husband took us back to the original list of rules, the 10 Commandments. He taught us that God is a God who brought us out of slavery. He has no intentions for us to be enslaved to the law but rather to be free!
We learned that when you start with the “Thou Shalt Not” God will always seem like a burden. But when you start with the “That you may!” you realize that everything God asks of us is so that we may experience something even better.
God is a YES God! There is so much more I want to say about this but I don’t want to spoil it for you if you are going to watch it. And I hope you will. The concept of God being a YES God is something that, I hope, will follow me the rest of my life.
Have a great Monday!
