In Dependence Day
Happy Birthday, United States of America!
I realized I have not posted a song in a while that I enjoy. I think this one is a good one for today.
The only way to truly have freedom in this life is to surrender to our Lord and Savior (Galatians 5:1).
Until then we are merely slaves to our own desires and sinfulness, and only through the Cross can we attain freedom and righteousness (Romans 6).
Remember on this day of celebration of freedom from tyranny (or whenever you celebrate freedom in some way) that it is only through the Lord Jesus Christ that we truly experience freedom.
It does not come through physical war. It does not come through destroying buildings or cities. It does not come through protests. It does not come through fighting or arguing.
It only comes through faith in the saving work of Jesus Christ through His death on the Cross and resurrection from the grave.
Happy birthday, United States of America! Happy Re-birthday, all who have found freedom in Christ!
