Holy Spirit- Freedom’s Song

September 2, 2018 Speaker: Damian Mericka Series: Living in the Holy Spirit

Topic: Holy Spirit- Freedom’s Song

Title: Holy Spirit- Freedom’s Song
Series: Living in The Spirit
Text: Supporting Scripture(s)
Main Idea: Gifted to serve alongside each other in Gospel Mission
I. Held Captive Until Freedom Came (Galatians 3:15-29)
 The promises of God are anchored in His unchanging
character amidst our ever-changing circumstances
(Vv.15-20)
 The Law held us captive to protect, nurture and lead us
into seeing all Promise brought to reality in Jesus
(Vv.21-22)
 Freedom is offered now to us all in Christ- we are now
resourced to live in Him, for Him and through Him
(Vv.23-29)
II. Freedom’s Song (Judges 4-5)
 Freedom offered to captives (4:1-7)
 Barack hesitates; victory promised through another
(Vv.8-10) -> Note fulfillment: Vv.17-24)
 What Happened?
o Leaders stepped up and led those willing! (v.2)
o God provided what those willing needed (Vv.3-9)
o Warriors experience / Civilians publish (Vv.10-11)
o A spark born in Deborah spread throughout all
the ranks (Vv.12-15)
o Those who said no:
 Reuben got lost in committees (v.16)
 Gilead stayed away (v.17)
 Dan and Asher were ready to run (v.17)
o Those who said yes:
 Zebulun and Naphtali risked their lives (v.18)
o God fought alongside His Children (Vv.19-22)
o A curse on those in the city of Meroz who said no and
stayed back (v.23)
III. Spirit is our Resource to Live in Freedom (Galatians 5)
 Do not return to servitude (v.1)
 Grow in Maturity- Say YES today! (Vv.16-24)
 Do this as family (6:1-5)

 

GOING DEEPER QUESTIONS (SMALL GROUP)
 What stood out to you about this message and why?
 What purpose did the Law serve compared with the work of Jesus?
 Does the Spirit equip us all with the fruit listed in Galatians 5? How
does this influence your perspective on Christian Maturity?
 In the Song from Judges 5, what role would you be found in right
now? Are you happy there? What are you doing to change or
maintain your role in the eternal song of redemption?
