My sermon from yesterday is called, “The Seed of Liberty.” You should know that I preached a three sermon series called “Liberty,” and yesterday’s sermon was the final one. Consider the following:
What is it about this experiment called Liberty? America indeed has been that God ordained experiment in liberty, where people’s right’s to worship and serve Him, or not, should not be infringed by tyranny. In this final sermon, part 3 of Pastor Read’s new series on “Liberty,” you will learn what true liberty is from the Bible’s point of view. And that liberty, even for a slave, is truly found only in Jesus Christ, who is the fulfillment of the promise that God made to Abraham over 3,500 years ago, that “In your Seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed…” (Galatians 3:16; Genesis 22:18).
Does anything today threaten to take away this liberty? Revelation chapter 13 certainly indicates that a time of religious deception is coming, when once again by tyranny, oppressive laws will proscribe liberty in favor of making “an image to the beast,” so… “that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Revelation 13:17)… and causing, “as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed” (Revelation 13:15). Only those who have what the Bible calls, “the faith of Abraham,” will have true liberty when their rights are denied by tyranny. Is your character such now, that you will be able to stand for right when the trial comes?

I am a follower of Jesus Christ who seeks to make Him known to those who do not yet know Him, and to make Him better known to those who do. Thus, God has led me throughout my life of now over 6 decades. I have been married to and in love with the same woman for over 38 years and we have children and grandchildren whom I also love. That does not mean my family has not been through trials. We human beings certainly know how to test and even hurt those we love. But, God Himself also knows the challenges, the trials and even the fickleness of human love. Yet, Jesus has demonstrated that God's love is sure and secure, faithful to the very end. So, yes, I love because God is love. And, I seek to make the love of God known as it should be. I am a pastor, a preacher and a teacher of God's word, the Bible. Before I became a preacher, I was a public school teacher, and before that I worked at various jobs including, painting, construction, ambulance EMT, parts assembler, and even a paperboy back in the day. In school I played trumpet in the band, was a track and cross country runner, enjoyed most subjects including History, English and Science, and yet, after graduating from high school, I struggled to find my path. Perhaps you can identify? I did not graduate with my Bachelor's degree until I was 26 years old. And yet, from an early age I knew that God was a God of love, and that He had a plan for me, if I would just be open to His leading. God has brought me through many trials, and has always been there to pick me up when I had fallen or been discouraged. And now, I hope to write in such a way to attract others to this God of love. By the way, I also enjoy camping, reading and outdoor activities, especially strolls on the beach, or hiking a mountain trail. My favorite places on earth are Sequoia National Park because of the Giant Sequoia trees, Yosemite National Park, and the jewel of Georgia known as Jekyll Island. I could tell you more; but hopefully, as you read my posts you will learn more about the God whom I love.
