A man recently freed from prison danced down the street shouting, “I’m free, I’m free!” A small boy observed him and said, “So what, I’m four.”
Sometimes we fail to fully grasp and appreciate all that is included in the concept of living in freedom. We live in a great country. Oh it has its problems on that I cannot disagree. But we have the freedom to disagree. And we have the freedom to address the problems that concern us. Yes, we are free. It is a gift that should be appreciated and not taken for granted.
And let us not forget that we all have the freedom to worship as we please. If you know Christ as your Lord and Savior you have been set free from the penalty of sin; you have been reconciled unto God the Father. Not only that but you have also been set free from the power of sin in your life. What a precious gift we have been given! It is one that should definitely not be taken for granted. The Bible says in 1 Peter 2:16 (NASB) “Act as free men, and do not use your freedom as a covering for evil, but use it as bondslaves of God.” Have a great Fourth of July and may God bless you and may God bless America.
