So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. —John 8:36

            Death no longer has a hold on me.  Sin’s power has been broken and I am no longer a slave to it.  Satan has no power over me.  I am free to live for Jesus who loves me so.

            Freedom…. This is what the United States was originally built upon.  Freedom comes from knowing Jesus.  As this nation turns from the Lord, like any other nation, governmental freedom will fade.  But the freedom in Christ never fails.  It does not matter what regime we live under.  The follower of Jesus is free.

            The whole world is a prisoner of sin (Galatians 3:21-25).  Only Jesus sets us free and makes us alive who were once dead in trespasses and sin (Ephesians 2:1-5).  It is for freedom that Christ has set us free (Galatians 5:1).  We are not to use that freedom to indulge the flesh.  Instead we are to use that freedom in Christ to serve (Galatians 5:13).  May we truly be servants of our Lord Jesus Christ!

            Brother and sister you are free!  Free to run the race marked out for us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:1-2).  Now out of gratitude to our Lord God Almighty let us faithful serve Him.  Dear Father may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
