John 10:1-19 Ezekiel 34:11-17 Madison Baptist

When we hear the word liberty, many words or images come to mind. The predominant picture found on Google images for the word “liberty” is the Statue of Liberty. For many, a church or school is our first thought: Liberty University or Liberty Baptist Church. For most, we equate liberty with freedom, a concept that we as Baptists cherish, since it was the Baptists who championed religious freedom in America in the 1700s. We should never take liberty for granted. We often hear or say, “Freedom is not free,” and then reference the many men and women who have given their lives for our freedoms. Our salvation was also bought with a price: the death of God’s Son, so we know that Jesus Christ is the door to liberty.
