true freedom = knowing Christ Jesus!

What freedom has been given to us as believers?

Freedom from Sin & Guilt 

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1

Jesus took the penalty of hell that we deserved, and bore our sin & guilt on the cross Himself.  As believers in Christ Jesus we can experience true freedom because sin no longer reigns over our lives. {This does not mean we never sin. We are just no longer bound in chains by our sins, and therefore strive to live our lives holy for our Lord and Savior. {As a believer in Jesus Christ, we are not perfect, we are just being perfected by the grace of Jesus Christ, not because of anything we’ve done, but because of what HE has done on the cross.} Romans 6, says sin no longer has dominion over us because of the work of Christ that has brought freedom.

So as an American citizen celebrating our Independence this 4th of July, remember to celebrate the freedom God has granted you as a citizen of this nation. But don’t neglect to celebrate true freedom in Christ and the sacrifice He gave to secure it.

And Thank you, to all whom have served our country and have paid a great price to help keep our countries freedoms. We solute you!

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17
It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you. -Dick Cheney
 
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! – Patrick Henry
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -Ronald Reagan
