You Call This Freedom?
Series: Standalone
Since our country will celebrate Independence Day in a couple of days, Troy talks about the concept of freedom, specifically the ways in which we have true freedom in Christ, and how that contrasts with the typical ideas people have about freedom. Many of the things that we believe give us freedom, actually enslave us and imprison us. Ironically, there's a type of "slavery" or "willing surrender" that gives us genuine freedom.

Well, of all the men and women who have ever lived on the earth, Jesus was the most passionate about the spread of God's glory to all peoples. And what did He do? He spent his life investing in a few people.

    Will I Ever Catch Another Butterfly?
    Series: Standalone
    It is good to be able to become nostalgic about childhood for just a moment. It may be the pressure of work or some other responsibility that is weighing heavily upon us, and for just a fleeting moment, perhaps, we remember it the way it was: the joy and freedom of flying kites and chasing butterflies. But then Bob reminds us that Jesus said unless you become like a child you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
