Celebrating Freedom

Many of us are no doubt excited about celebrating our nation's freedom tomorrow,  Lord-willing. We can certainly thank the Lord for all the freedoms that we enjoy in this country that are unknown in other parts of the world.

I wanted to share with my readers some verses from the Bible that touch on t
he subject of liberty and freedom. Please take a moment to think about what these verses really mean.

"If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed" (John 8:36).

"The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death"(Romans 8:2).

"Where the Spirit of the Lord is,  there is liberty" (2 Corinthians 3:17).

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty where with Christ hath made us free" (Galatians 5:1).

For those who are Christians, we are free men and servants at the same time! That's one of the wonderful paradoxes of the Christian faith. Read Romans 6:15-23 to see what I mean!

Have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend!!!!
