Inspired by . . . what makes you free

The proud boast:
"We are Abraham's descendants, they replied; we have never been in slavery to anyone. What do you mean by saying, "You will become free"?

The Truth:
"In very truth, I tell you', said Jesus, 'that everyone who commits sin is a slave. The slave has no permanent standing in the household, but the son belongs to it for ever. If then the Son sets you free, you will indeed be free.' "

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We enjoy more freedoms in this country than in any other country in the world. More so than the Jews, who were under Roman rule at the time, we have much about which to boast and celebrate. And we should celebrate. And we should remember the cost of our freedom. For freedom isn't free. Neither our personal freedom nor our freedom from sin. Both were paid for in blood.

Wishing you all a happy and safe Independence Day!
