July 4 Devotion: Freedom


John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Fireworks, cookouts, red white and blue. Those are just a few of the things we think about today as we celebrate our country’s independence. Regardless of just how bad it may be right now we do still live in the greatest country in the world. The freedoms that we do still get to celebrate far outnumber what few freedoms so many other countries have. We should never forget all the men and women that have given their lives for us to have a day to celebrate. Many people paid that ultimate sacrifice and today should be treated far better than just being looked at as a day off. As we do thank them we should not forget the sacrifice Christ made that gives us true freedom! If you’ve been born again then you aren’t bound by sin! You are free indeed! Just personally speaking I remember what it was like to be lost. I remember the battle going on in my mind. I remember what is was like to worry about what happens if die in a car wreck. Praise God for the day I set aside the pride and fear of man and truly trusted Christ. I thank the Lord I never have those thoughts anymore. A blessing to have peace in Him! Thank Him today for the ultimate freedom we have in Him!

God bless you today! Bro. Josh Richardson
