A note from Sarah 

Hi Tube Family,
 
Love and miss you. Really looking forward to the time when we can gather together. I’ve loved thinking about the idea of freedom and what it looks like for us to live free in Jesus. Our main text for the series is Galatians 5:1 but I’ll be spending most of the time in Romans 6:15-23. 
 
Here’s our three big ideas this week:
Know Yourself
Know God
Know Life
 
 
I found this quote from John Stott really helpful; I’ll read it in the message but it’s long, so you might want to think about it in more depth:
 
True freedom is not freedom from all responsibility to God and man in order to live for myself, but the exact opposite. True freedom is freedom from myself and from the cramping tyranny of my own self-centredness, in order to live in love for God and others. Only in such self-giving love is an authentically free and human existence to be found.

Prayer should be a two way conversation, so this week let’s allow God, our Heavenly  Father to speak to us.   

He says;
     “My dear child, over the last few months I have been very close to you. 

Often you have not noticed me,   but I have  seen when you have been fearful and I have  protected you.

I have noticed when you have felt lonely, and I promoted that friendly phone call or email, or message that you received.
I have seen when you have felt down, and I sent the sunshine and beauty in nature to surround you.   Because I care for you.
You are so precious to me, that I watch over you day and night. I meet all your needs.

I have loved it when you have had more time to spend with me - I love your prayers, and when you just sit quietly with me.
You bring me joy when I see you reach out to others in your caring.  You are my hands and feet in your neighbourhood.  I long to bless others through you.

I plan a great future for you.  Because you will always be my very precious child.  

Love from God, your Heavenly Father.

If you want to go deeper on the idea of Perfect Freedom, I enjoyed this message by Tim Keller and borrowed a few ideas from it (full credit to his genius, and please join me in praying for his healing from cancer this week). You can watch it on YouTube here:
