"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1
Happy 4th of July!!! I believe we should celebrate our independence and freedom. Many men and women have sacrificed so much, even their lives, so that we could enjoy freedom. However, the greatest freedom we can embrace and enjoy is the freedom from sin...its power and its penalty. Jesus Christ lived, died, and rose again so that we could have life and have it abundantly! He did this so we could be forgiven and freed! As Americans, we can stand firm upon the foundation of a country that was laid over 237 years ago. As Christ followers, we can stand firm upon the foundation of faith and salvation that was laid over 2,000 years ago. But one day this country and this world as we know it will cease to exist. Our souls, however, will not. We will either live for eternity or die for eternity. Thank God for the true freedom we have in Christ!!! Have you embraced Christ and the freedom He gives???
