    Freed to Love XVI.mp3 Stir it up! – PDF  Key Texts: Phil. 1:29,30; Phil. 2:1-11; Jn. 8:29; II Cor. 5:9   Overview: This week we spent some time exploring “letting this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” ~ Phil. 2:5 The key points we traversed were: Christ considered it a privilege to suffer for the Father – It is expected therefore of the Christian, to have the same mind.

    Freed to Love XV.mp3   Key Texts: Phil. 1 & 2 Overview: Paul gives us a view of what sufferings looks like by divulging to the church of Philippi his current situation for the sake of the Gospel.

  Freed to Love XIV.mp3  Key Texts: Gal. 3:19   Overview: Two things: You are NOT owed an apology. “Against You and You ONLY have I sinned and done this wickedness in YOUR sight oh God.” said the psalmist. Just because you are effected directly or indirectly from another’s sin, does NOT make them accountable to you – but to God. Vengeance BELONGS to God and so therefore DOES NOT belong to YOU! So what does the scripture tell the offended to do? Tell the offender what they did to hurt you and give them the opportunity to repent (change their minds) […]
