God has an incredible purpose for us in this life. We get to know and love the God of the universe, and even participate in His plans! Our amazing privilege is to live for the glory of God, that His name and His fame would be spread throughout the earth. And if this were not enough, Jesus has promised us abundant life and joy not dependent on any life circumstance. John 10:10 (ESV) The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. Even though we know all the promises of Scripture are true, it easy to lose focus and become weighed down with cares, defeat, past hurts, hopelessness, and other areas of sin that keep us in bondage. These hindrances steal our intimacy with Christ and the joy of our salvation. Freedom is about being released to love and serve Jesus wholeheartedly. Put simply, Knowing Freedom is about becoming more like Jesus and reflecting His love and power to everyone around us. Freedom is not just about changing behavior, but about letting God change our very being. The goal of the class is not to learn new information that we can store on a dusty bookshelf. The goal is transformation, and the time is now!
