It is July 4th, the day Americans celebrate freedom. Every American should be thankful for the freedom that our forefathers purchased for us, and the freedom that our military secures for us. As Christians we should really be thankful because in many countries Christians are persecuted, tortured, and killed. So let’s celebrate our freedom.
But sadly many individuals, including Christians, have a false freedom of what is True Freedom. True Freedom is to have self-control, to say no to sin. True Freedom is to follow the example of Christ. True Freedom is to be willing to freely give ones’ life for another person, to sacrifice.
A person walking in True Freedom is not a slave to sin and a slave to their flesh.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. (Jesus is the Truth)
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
Ask yourself what type of freedom are you living. The only way to have True Freedom is through Jesus Christ ruling in your life. He gives the Holy Spirit who empowers you to walk in True Freedom.
