The Freedom to Sacrifice
Passage: 1 Corinthians 8:1–8:13
Text: 1 Corinthians 8:1-13
Title: The Freedom to Sacrifice.
The issue of food sacrificed to idols.
- Knowledge can lead us to be right at the expense of others (1 Cor. 8:1)
Love leads us to live right in relationships with others (1 Cor. 8:1-3).
We can manipulate truth to benefit ourselves (1 Cor. 8:4-6).
Love leads us to accept the struggles of others, even when it negatively impacts us (1 Cor. 8:7-8).
Our freedoms can easily become a disguise for our slavery to sin (1 Cor. 8:9-12).
In Christ we have the freedom to willingly sacrifice for the good of others (1 Cor. 8:13).
Are you free?
Are you exercising your freedom in Christ?
