“Jesus replied, ‘Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'” (John 8:34-36)
This week as you’re celebrating Independence Day, why not take some moments to thank God for the freedom we have in Christ.
As you can see from the verse above, we are free from being slaves to sin. That’s cause for a major celebration by itself!
Here’s a few more freedoms to celebrate:
Freedom from Condemnation – “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:1-2)
Freedom to Let Go of Past Hurts – “Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.” (Romans 12:17-19)
What an honor and privilege it is to be a child of God! Blessings to you as you walk in those freedoms and more today and every day!
