This Sunday, July 3, Pastor Dustin shared that Jesus teaches us that releasing baggage frees us to live the free life God intended. In Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus says “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
There are three bags we need to release: Frustration of religion, Fear of sin and guilt, and Festering wounds of resentment and bitterness. By releasing this baggage we will receive these three blessing that the free life offers: Freedom found in a life-giving relationship with Christ, Forgiveness and release from our sin and guilt, and Faith in God for guidance and healing of our hurts and wounds.
