Broken Wings

Passage: 1 Corinthians 9:1-27

It is difficult for me to fathom just how folks like Martin Luther could have accomplished so much. He preached and taught regularly, wrote extensively, traveled frequently, met with students and officials, answered tons of letters, and still found time for his cherished wife and children and to hoist a beer or two with friends. And all this without a smart phone, a laptop, or even a good day planner! Well, maybe partly because he didn't have those things but whatever, he was busy and productive. Part of his early output were three treatises written and published in fairly short order. They really marked out several of the most significant themes he would address and refine throughout his later years of ministry. We are going to look at three of them this week: the concept of the priesthood of all believers, the nature of Christian freedom, and the idea that that freedom actually puts us in bondage. Hope that sounds intriguing!
