Life, Liberty & The Pursuit
Celebrating The Cross of Freedom
People flock to fireworks all over this country to celebrate its emancipation. Fourth of July is when America celebrates and reflects on the price that was paid for its freedom.
There was a major price paid for us to be free as well. God's desires, even from the beginning of time, were for us to be free. This is the reason He sent His Son to the earth.
Jesus has set us free; now we must be made free. Freedom has a price and carries a responsibility. Freedom requires decision. Freedom requires change. Freedom requires relationship. Freedom requires faith and a commitment to the Word of God. Absolute truth is the only path that leads to absolute freedom. Only when you have grasped the truth of Jesus Christ can you truly be free.
Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone or anything put a harness of slavery on you. (Gal. 5:1 TMB).
Freedom requires you to divulge yourself of the things that have kept you enslaved. All too often we are accomplices to our own imprisonment because we relinquish the controls of our freedom to someone or something. Don't be an accomplice to your own bondage! When you are emancipated in Christ, your whole mindset changes to reflect that freedom. When Christ sets you free you are truly free and nothing can prevent you from experiencing all God has for you.
We hold these truths to be self-evident that each of us have been created in God's image; endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We secure these rights through the Word of God, the blood of Jesus and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. United we stand in the Kingdom of God and jubilantly proclaim absolute freedom as we place our entire trust in the Almighty God.
This is our independence! This is our freedom! This is our declaration!
