Happy 4th of July

As we celebrate and thank our God for the freedom we enjoy in America on this day, let us also remember to praise and thank God for the freedom that is ours in Christ Jesus!

Isaiah 61:1
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners;

John 8:32
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

John 8:35-36
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.

2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Galatians 5:1
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Galatians 5:13
But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.

Ephesians 3:12
In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence.

Colossians 1:22
But now he has reconciled you by Christ's physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation.

1 Peter 2:16
Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.

Hey Joni,

Great minds think alike. I was considering posting today also about our freedom in Christ as we celebrate the 4th of July. But you have such a great job, I'll just leave it to you.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I know where my true identity is, at times when life cirumstances are almost unbearable, it's easy to forget that our true identity doesn't change. Looking forward to getting to know you better.
