When did you declare your independence? We celebrate America’s independence on July 4th, but when do you celebrate yours? It is rather ironic isn’t it? It is really in our “dependence” on the Father that we are free. It seems like we are always looking for “freedom” to do what we want, when we want it…and yet, if the hole we have in our spirit is not filled with Christ, our quest will never be over. We will constantly be looking for that next thing that we think will make us happy….a better spouse, a better job, more money, a bigger house, our children’s lives…our identity has to be in Christ and nothing else or we will be miserable. I speak from experience.
May you enjoy your day and celebrate your true freedom….that freedom IN CHRIST ALONE.
Our freedom as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ is not based upon our government..although I am so grateful to live in this nation.
My freedom is based on who I am in Christ. In HIM my true freedom lies.
Romans 8:1-4 “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
Happy 4th of July friends!
In Christ Alone,
FREEDOM!! Happy 4th of July!
How many ways can it be declared? How many ways can it be discussed?
We live in the United States of America and we are free. We are free. Let that sink in.
We complain about a lot…and I am one of the chiefs, but we are free. Continue reading Freedom! Happy 4th!
