Freedom

Sunrise on a new day

 

Yesterday was July 4th. In America we celebrate our freedom has a nation. This is the day of our independence from Great Britain way back on July 4, 1776. Now Great Britain is one of our greatest allies.

However, more important than national freedom, we Christians celebrate our freedom in Christ every day.

If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:36). “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Jesus, the Son of God came to set us free. Through the finished work of Jesus on the Cross, we are forgiven, reconciled, justified, and made righteous. That is if we choose to be free.

His freedom is only for those who believe in the Son. It is for those who believe that Jesus died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again all on behalf of those who believe. This year on this website we are celebrating all our freedoms found in Jesus. “It was for freedom that Christ set us free” (Galatians 5:1 NASB).
