“Let it All Bring Focus to Christ”
Pastor John Gensmer’s Sermon: “Let it All Bring Focus to Christ”
June 6th, 2021 at Abiding Love Lutheran Church
I. Christ Has Purchased Us Rest from the Law
II. Traditions are Meant to Bring Us to Rest in Christ
13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.
