Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July

From My Family

To Yours!

As I think about the blessings and freedom we
have in this country, I know that it comes
at a cost. Many countless men and women have
given their lives for the freedom we have in
America and many are still fighting the battle
today for us to enjoy life in America. The
cost was high, but the effect is such a blessing.
We need to be grateful for those who have
paid the price for our freedom and to pray
for those who are defending it across the
world today!

I started thinking how similar freedom is
in our spiritual lives as Christians. Freedom
is what we receive when Christ becomes Lord
of our lives:

"So if the Son (Jesus Christ) sets you free,
you will be free indeed." John 8:36

We are free from the bondage of sin that
we are born into:

"You have been set free from sin and have
become slaves to righteousness." Romans 6:18

And the ultimate gift will be eternal life:

"But now that you have been set free from
sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit
you reap leads to holiness, and the result is
eternal life." Romans 6:22

There was high cost for our freedom

But to us who say "yes" to Jesus and open
our hearts to follow Him, the price was
paid for us already. The blood of Jesus
and his death and resurrection have given
us true freedom that can never be taken

For that I am eternally grateful.

Do you know Jesus? If not, receive His
freedom by making Him the Lord of your life.
God Bless You this 4th of July!
