True Freedom

As the United States celebrates freedom and independence tomorrow, July 4th, we think of those in other countries who may not have the same freedom we enjoy. Our hearts go out to those who suffer at the hands of terrorists and militias who bring harm in any way.

Although we are not all equally blessed as far as freedom in the world goes, we can all be equally blessed by true freedom. What is true freedom? The freedom in Christ when we become God's child. Jesus died so that we all could have that freedom.

"So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, "If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free." " John 8:31-32

"It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1 (Note: The "yoke of slavery" is referring to the old law - the law Christ's death abolished.) "Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes." Romans 10:4)

"But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. " Romans 6:22-23
