Bible Study Topic: Freedom

Scripture Reference: Galatians 5:1

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery (NIV).

Galatians 5:1 NIV

Lesson Introduction: What is Freedom?

The dictionary meaning of freedom is the right or power to speak, act, or think without restraint or hindrance. This wraps up everything Jesus has done for us. Before now, you and I were in sin and headed on a path that leads to eternal separation from God. This was the eternal penalty of our sins, but thankfully we have been set free in Christ.

When a sinner sincerely repents, God forgives and blots out all of his sins and doesn’t remember them anymore. In other words, God doesn’t just forgive us for our past. He also liberates us from the guilt and shame of our past and the yoke of sin. He takes away everything that opposed our freedom.

If time allows, choice a youth ministry game idea to break the ice and help the teenagers feel comfortable in the church group setting.
