Freedom in Christ

July in America reminds us of independence, symbolic of a free nation. As believers we have freedom in Christ: a people who are free to worship our God. We have access to our Father through Jesus who paid the price for us. Jesus paid so we could be free from the bondage of sin and death. Our freedom allows us choices,  moment by moment, as to what we do and who we serve: God, enemy or self.

I am grateful to live in a nation where I am free to pray, worship and read the Bible whenever I desire.
I pray for our nation that we would not take for granted the freedoms we have, but rather give God the glory for the things He has done for us. He has certainly blessed us with so much.
This July, let us recall the great  sacrifice made for us by Jesus. Let us bless the things He has blessed us with. Let us be thankful and with grateful hearts praise the Lord for the freedoms we have experienced in our walk with Him.
