Great Sermon! As an answer to the question posed at the end, I actually find freedom in rules. There is freedom from perception and persecution if Tchividjian followed the Graham Rule. As an example, driving the speed limit frees me from fear of being pulled over for speeding from the police. If I see a police car on the road, my first instinct is not to put on my brakes because I know that I am obeying the law. I have freedom from not being constantly on the lookout. When I DO sin, I seem to be constantly looking over my shoulder and already trying to come up with an excuse for my sin. There is no freedom in that. Freedom is found in doing right and letting the fruit of the Spirit grow as much as possible. Against such there is no law. Galations 5:22-23
Amen and Amen During my years in the Army, I counted it a blessing to have a chaplain that preached the Word. Soldiers, Sailers, Airmen, and Marines need the Gospel preached to them. Thank you for committing to this field of harvest. It is truly white. I pray to the Lord of the harvest to send more laborers.
