Free to Live! Free to Tell!

Free to Live! Free to Tell! focuses on Jesus’ encounter with the Gerasene man possessed by demons.

We watch a liberator who sets people free! Jesus gives Himself to you as your liberator.

Then, we watch a Lord who gives you good news to tell! The Lord opens the door, you can speak in simple words of what Jesus has done for you and the truth He has revealed to you in His word. You’re free in all of this, since it is not your obligation to convince anybody, but simply to testify to what you know.

Free to Live! Free to Tell! is based on these scriptures:

  • Psalm 3

  • Isaiah 65:1-9

  • Galatians 3:23-4:7

  • Luke 8:26-39
