July Fourth Independence Day - Are We Free/

It is July 4, 2012, Independence Day, a day that commemorates our country's independence from England. As Americans, July 4 represents the birth of our great nation and the dawn of a new day of freedom. But speaking of freedom, are we truly free?

Are we free from the burdens and cares of this life? Are we free from the terrible guilt of sin? Are we free from fear? Are we free from degrading passions that lead us into shameful indulgences? Free from the love of money and always wanting things? Free from anger, malice, envy, bitterness and negative emotions that keep us in a state of emotional turmoil? Free from the power and penalty of sin? Free from the lies of Satan?

I have good news today on this Fourth of July, if you are not living a life of freedom there is someone who came to set the captives free. His name is Jesus, through faith in Him you can be set free. He died and rose again so that we could be set free and walk in freedom.

Make this July Fourth you Independence Day, surrender your life to Jesus and make Him your all in all. The Bible says, "He whom the Son(the son of God) sets free is free indeed."
