12.03.17 - Freedom Part 1 - Get to the Root
What is the root of your problem? The world and Christians alike both spend huge amounts of time, money and effort dealing with negative symptoms in their lives in an attempt to make it better. But so very few find real freedom & healing. Why? We do not deal with the root. The answer is not physical or psychological. It is spiritual. That is why we need to receive the finished work of Jesus - Grace gets to the root of all the sickness - and that root is condemnation. This is freedom - listen and allow the Lord to love you and you will receive freedom!

What do you do with guilt? It stops us receiving from God as we are constantly reminded that we fall short. How can we expect to receive if we every day we fail? Jesus took guilt and all of its effects and removed it through His death on the cross. We do not need to hide anymore. We can be free from condemnation and guilt.

What is shame and what effect does it have on you? It is different from guilt. Guilt is when you realise you did something wrong. Shame is when you believe you are what you do. Your entire identity is based on your failures & mistakes. The effects of this can range from mild embarrassment to an awful sense of unworthiness that cuts a person off from meaningful relationship with God and with each other. We struggle to receive anything from God if we believe that He is judging us on what we do.
The good news of grace is that it goes to the deepest parts of our lives and shows us that Jesus took every bit of shame and dealt with it. You can be truly free from shame and guilt - all the free gift of Jesus!

At times we turn away from Jesus when we fail. We feel bad, making the same mistakes we promised we would stop. We try but it can feel impossible at times. Jesus is never the source of your shame or guilt. His perfect work took that away. Today Andrew shows how Jesus himself dealt with someones disappointment by showing himself to them from the very beginning. Their hearts burned as a result. Every time you see Jesus revealed your heart will burn - no more shame. No more guilt. No more condemnation.

How do you actually walk in freedom - getting rid of guilt & shame? The answer is faith. People freak out when they hear about faith because they do not know what it is or how to operate in it.
