17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3:17 NIV)
On this July 4th we celebrate hard fought freedom. But much earlier we were given the option of freedom from sin through Christ. He died to set us free from our sins and provide life eternal.
This message is too good to be true and is offered freely if we will but accept.
But with this freedom, much like our national freedom, it came at a price; one paid once and for all by Christ.
And in this freedom we are given a commission to tell others this good news of great joy.
In difficult and trying times, this freedom is the freedom that truly sets us free.
