When you think of bondage, what comes to mind? Maybe guilt, condemnation, poverty, sickness and disease, shame, temptations or addictions. There are many things that can be considered bondage. You might be fighting negative thoughts. You might be fighting depression. You might be fighting to pay your bills. Anything that comes against you where you are not living a full and peaceful life would be considered bondage.
While a majority of Americans are celebrating the 4th of July this weekend, we celebrate our heroes, our military, and our founding fathers. All who have blessed America with their amazing abilities in order to give us freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from oppression, liberty, and opportunity.
However, there is one person who has given us so much more than that. There is one person who laid down his life for us so that we could be free from every yoke, every bondage, and every sickness.
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” ~ Galatians 5:1
Through Jesus’ finished work at the cross, He freely gave us peace, love, forgiveness, health, finances, and all the wonderful things that come from our Heavenly Father. So just as important as it is to remember the amazing freedom that we have as a society and for all those who have fought and died for that freedom; it is as important not to forget the amazing sacrifice Jesus did for each of us individually. It is His ultimate sacrifice that makes it all possible.
For who the son sets free is free indeed! ~ John 8:36
So as people from all walks of life celebrate this weekend, may we thank all who have stood strong in the midst of adversity and thank our Lord Jesus Christ for making it all possible.
Today and every day, you can walk in Jesus’ amazing finished work and enjoy peace, love, prosperity, restoration, forgiveness, vitality, and more. It is His grace and His finished work that gives you PURE FREEDOM!
For each celebration and firework proves that we as a nation still stand strong, we are still one nation under God, and through His grace and power…we shall all remain free in the Family of God! Praise the Lord for He is worthy!
