We live in a wonderful country that provides us with innumerable freedoms, but the greatest freedom in our lives does not come from our country, it comes from God. Through Christ we are free from sin and free to love. What a wonderful blessing that is. It is too great to measure.
We’ll celebrate the Fourth today with Kelpbox races, a bar b que and pie social and a day off from work.
I wonder how we celebrate freedom from sin. I wonder if people even think of this freedom in light of the celebration of our country’s Independence Day.
God’s word tells us to celebrate freedom from sin by serving one another in love. It goes on to say that this is how love grows.
Just think of the problems we could avoid if all people tried to serve each other in love. I am thankful for the freedoms in our lives and most of all for the freedom to love, the freedom from sin.
Father, you give us everything. Help me to show this love to others. Make me a blessing today. Amen.
