Christians talk a lot about freedom, but what does it really mean to be free?
This Sunday we’re celebrating our independence by declaring our dependence on Jesus!

DECLARING YOUR DEPENDENCE
(Isaiah 61:1, NLT) The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me, for the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed.
- Real independence is discovered in total DEPENDENCE on Jesus
What does it mean to be truly be free?
- Declaring independence from our PAST, and living in freedom in GOD-REALITY
Real freedom involves surrender:
- Surrender everything from your PAST
- Surrender to everything He IS
- Surrender to everything He’s designed you to ACCOMPLISH
- We experience FREEDOM when we believe JESUS
- Belief begins in our MINDS
- Belief continues in our ACTIONS
(John 8:36, NLT) If the Son sets you free, you are truly free.
Trust Jesus with my BELIEF, then trust Him with my LIFE
