Liberated (Acts 26:12-18)Pastor Jared Shumate, November 11, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
As we celebrate Veterans Day today, we think about the sacrifices made by so many men and women who have selflessly placed their lives on the line protecting our freedoms. Because of their willingness to serve, we have freedoms and liberty. To each and every one who is service or has served, we say thank you!
Just as those who serve in the military liberate us, God and the loving sacrifice of His Son liberates us from sin! We can live a victorious life because of the strength of the liberty found in Him. Saul experienced this liberty first-hand during his conversion. His eyes were opened, he was freed, and he was liberated!
Are you experiencing the liberty found in God's forgiveness? Have you been released from the bondage of sin? If not, open your eyes to Him today! He's there, waiting, arms wide open, to welcome you. Be Liberated today!

12Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, 13At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. 14And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 15And I said, Who art thou, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest. 16But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; 17Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, 18To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. (KJV)
