FREEDOM



Freedom

Throughout history, men and women have yearned for freedom
- to worship
- to speak
- to live a life of their own choosing.

Many have sacrificed much in the cause of freedom
- home and family
- fortune
- their very lives.

We are blessed to live in freedom purchased at such great cost
- free from oppression
- free from fear of unjust imprisonment
- free from slavery.

In spite of that so many are not free at all. They are
- bound by addictions
- imprisoned by fear
- burdened by guilt and oppressed by an enemy they cannot see.

True freedom came in the form of a baby over 2000 years ago. He
- left His home in glory
- gave up the riches of heaven
- gave His life for us.

When we come, by faith, to the cross we are set free. He
- breaks the chains that bind us
- takes away all fear
- cleanses us from sin and gives us victory over the enemy.

"IF THEREFORE THE SON SHALL MAKE YOU FREE, YOU SHALL BE FREE INDEED."
JOHN 8:36

Have a blessed Fourth of July everyone!!

Happy Fourth to y'all, too! (I figured I could add the "y'all" since you're a fellow Texan. ;)

I loved this post, Linda.

You know - for some reason that has whirred in my head as well - that true freedom only comes from the cross.
Thank you so much for sharing it, Linda.

Blessings to you and yours this 4th of July. May our Lord and Savior continue to give you His freedom.
