Sermon: Reformation Day (Gospel)

26 October AD 2013

Title: Free Indeed (MP3 Audio)

Broken Chain Summary: Caught in an inescapable prison, we are born sinners, doomed to an eternity without God. However, Jesus came to free us by offering Himself as payment from our sins. His sacrifice freed us from the tyranny of sin, death, and Devil. His resurrection promises us life everlasting.

Text: So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”

Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:31-36

Audio: Click to hear the MP3 of Free Indeed, preached to the saints at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Warrensburg, Missouri.

NB: For some reason, a few people have had problems trying to play the inline audio if Windows Media is their default MP3 player. If this occurs, you can either change to QuickTime or another default browser player, copy and paste the link directly into a selected player, or download it to your computer, where it seems to work regardless of which player. Several folks have suggested VLC Player from VideoLAN.

Other Readings: Psalm 46; Revelation 14:6-7; Romans 3:19-28
