Raymond A. Foss Poems

Holy Freedom by Raymond A. Foss
Freedom, given by our God,
at such an awful cost
Freedom from the yoke
of sin, the separation from God
But a freedom with responsibility,
with risk, requiring of us
to exhibit, to live
holy fruits of the spirit
not the failings, the
spoiled fruit of the flesh,
Its desires.
Holy freedom is the
gift to serve, to commit,
to love our fellows,
to become a slave to
Your will for our lives

July 1, 2007 19:45
Inspired by the sermon by the Reverend Lori Eldredge,
“The Pursuit of Freedom: License of Liberty”;
by the sermon by the Reverend Lori Eldredge
for Children’s Time, “Fresh Fruit”; and
by the Proclamation by the Worship Facilitator Alan Schulte,
for the Rejuvenation Service, “Do Not Submit to the Yoke of Slavery”,
all three based on Galatians 5:1 & Galatians 5:13-25,
7/1/07, Wesley United Methodist Church, Concord, NH
