TOPIC: YOU CAN EXERCISE YOUR FREEDOM TEXT: 1 CORINTHIANS 8 : 1 - 13 The issue of food sacrificed to idols is the major concern here. Paul said that mature believers should avoid eating meat offered to idols if it would violate the conscience of weak Christians. Christian freedom does not mean that anything goes. It has to do with our salvation which we obtained by the free gift of God. When we love others, our freedom should be less important to us than strengthening the faith of brethren in Christ. As today is set aside as 'Democracy Day,' we can help others know that through Christ leaders can provide good governance for their people. Leaders who promote good governance provide true democracy.
How will you help someone experience true democracy? PRAYER
Help me, oh Lord, to make useful contributions to the government of my country so that the rule of law, justice, equity and true love can be entrenched, in Jesus name, Amen.
