Real Freedom Through Christ


Freedom is a beautiful thing. Because of freedom, we are able to pursue our dreams and our goals. Because of freedom, we are able to enjoy the people and things around us without restraint. Because of freedom, we are able to gather together corporately to exalt God and sing His praises. But what if freedom meant something more than just autonomy in what we do or where we go? 

God’s Word tells us that we are all, by nature and choice, captives…slaves to sin and corruption. Yet we find this glorious, blood bought promise from our Lord in John 8:36 – “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”  True freedom is ultimately realized in the Cross of Christ, where He broke the bonds of sin and death and ransomed us from our soul’s captivity.

To the King who conquer death, to free the poor and the oppressed.
For lasting peace, for life and liberty in the son.

This week, as the value of freedom is celebrated far and wide, in the united state of America, July 4th is the Independence Day also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth in the U.S., is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer part of the British Empire. 

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworksparadesbarbecuescarnivals

Independence Day is the National Day of the United States. we also remember freedom in the deepest possible sense – the freedom that brings a lasting peace and security that can never be taken away.  

Whether in personal meditation or in a call to worship with your congregation, consider the words from the hymn, “For the Cause” by Keith and Kristen Getty, that celebrate the King who became a servant to free His people. The highest freedom is in Christ, he is the only one who can set free indeed, the freedom of the world is temporary, it will vanish with time.
