Giving Thanks For Freedom

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.”
–Galatians 5:1-6

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”
Romans 8:1-4

Thank you Jesus for for the freedom I enjoy today, that we celebrated this weekend. No, not the freedom won by our forefathers from the British. Rather, I thank you for the freedom that you won for me on the cross. I thank you for the freedom you grant me, not by anything I have done, but by your grace. It is the freedom I maintain through my faith. It is the freedom from sin, that grants me eternal life, regardless of where I live, what government is in place, or what any man on earth could ever achieve on his own.

“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
John 8:32

Thanks!
