Sunday to Monday / On the Fringe

Free us, Lord Jesus, from all that binds and enslaves us, all that constrains us from freely following you.

 Free us from merely respectable, polite religion so that we may more boldly, courageously, and exuberantly be the disciples you deserve.

 Free us to step over our boundaries, to open doors, to go where you are in the world of human need.

 Free us that we might be bound only to you.  Amen.

On Sunday, Pastor Dave talked about the demons that have a hold of us.  When they're not chasing us, we're chasing them.  Those demons keep us from truly being free.  God loves us just the way we are and each one of us is unique in his eyes.

  • What are the demons you see in the world?  (Luke 8:26-39)
  • What demons are chasing you?
  • Want to exorcize demons?  Need to be dispossessed of our possessions?  Here are Jesus’ Ten Commandments that have revolutionized how humans live, and have exorcized the demons that threaten to destroy us.
    • Be yourself
    • Love the world by loving your neighbor
    • Learn from everyone
    • Love always
    • Be merciful
    • Live surround sound
    • Learn a living
    • Trust is black and green
    • Trust the Spirit: force is a farce
    • Show courage

Based on Paul Johnson’s “10 Commandments of Jesus” from his Biography of Jesus
