Celebrating Freedom

Flag:Bible

Today we are celebrating freedom here in the States. Originally it meant freedom to worship the way God tells us to in the Bible, His word. It also meant freedom from a controlling government. To some it’s come to mean freedom to do whatever you want, with no thought to how it will affect others. But, as our American freedoms, that many have fought so hard for, are slipping away, I am clinging to the freedom God promises us through His son Jesus Christ! He provides the only true and lasting freedom available, and it’s wonderful to know that I have this freedom as a follower of Christ, and that it can NEVER be taken away!

John 8:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

I enjoyed seeing the many different flags on our travels in Ireland, England and Scotland. Each flag represents feelings and beliefs for each country. Each one tells a fascinating story about that land, it’s principles and what it’s people stand for.

2Co 3:17 “Now, the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, he gives freedom.”

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. ”
2 Chronicles 7:13-15

Tonight we’ll enjoy a fireworks show and celebrate our freedoms, both physical and spiritual. But most importantly we’ll be celebrating the freedoms offered by our savior and God!

Happy Freedom Day Everyone!!!
