I realize not everyone who reads my blog is in the United States and may not share my joy in celebrating our national independence today, but regardless of nationality, I think we can all appreciate the sacrifice of men and women around the world to attain their freedom.
Liberty is prized, not only by Americans, but by all who realize that God created us to be free. Imagine what life would have been like if mankind had never rebelled against God. What glorious freedom there is apart from the power of sin! What amazing grace that Christ offers to break the bonds of sin!
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1
So whether you join me as an American in remembering God’s blessing upon the founding of a nation that holds liberty in such high esteem, or celebrate as a child of God the freedom we have in Christ, let us never forget that our freedom has been bought with precious blood and is to be cherished and celebrated!
