Simple Sermon Outline: Free Indeed

Here comes another "Simple Sermon Outline" here on the Desperate Pastor blog, for the hardworking pastor who takes seriously the task of breaking the Bread of Life to God's people but is sometimes up against a wall and fresh out of ideas. This week's outline, like the rest, is simple and sparse, in the hope that it will ignite (not replace) the process of prayer, study, and creativity.

Today's outline is appropriate for a Fourth of July weekend, if you're among our readers in the U.S....even if you're not.
Free Indeed
John 8:31-36

All who sin are slaves to sin (v. 34)
Sin enslaves
Sin distorts
Sin disfigures

The Son can set you free (v. 36)
