Happy Independence Day

“For freedom, Christ has set us free; stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1 ESV)

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (2 Corinthians 3:17 ESV)

Today is a holiday. Today, the United States celebrates our independence from England. We have the freedom of speech even though some might not like what you have to say, you can freely say it.

Google defines freedom as “the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.” Roger R. Nicole, author and theologian, gave this helpful definition of freedom: The ability to fulfill one’s destiny, to function in terms of one’s ultimate goal. 

But do you know we also have freedom in God?  Jesus died on the cross, ensuring us the freedom of choice. Freedom to choose which path we wanted to take, the one that follows Jesus to heaven or the one that follows satan to hell.

Jesus died for our sins. But we still have free will to choose which life we want. Please choose the right one. Choose eternal life in heaven. 

I hope everyone enjoys the holiday, and please be careful if you are shooting off fireworks. And always remember Jesus loves you no matter what. 

Happy holiday, and have a great day, everyone.
