Sermon Introduction –
Truth Will Set You Free. Pastor Scott Maxwell-Doherty joins us from California Lutheran University to share this sermon message.
Introduction to our readings
Rooted in the past and growing into the future, the church must always be reformed in order to live out the love of Christ in an ever-changing world. We celebrate the good news of God’s grace, that Jesus Christ sets us free every day to do this life-transforming work. Trusting in the freedom given to us in baptism, we pray for the church, that Christians will unite more fully in worship and mission.
Reading: Psalm 43
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
Reading: John 8:31-36
Jesus speaks of truth and freedom as spiritual realities known through his word. He reveals the truth that sets people free from sin.
