The Land of The Free...
Galatians 5:1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
We often wonder if our nation really understands the true foundation and cause of our freedom. How easy it is to flex our military muscles and marvel at our diplomatic skills attributing our freedom to these flawed and finite mechanisms. But are they the true source of our freedom? And what have we done with the freedom we have?
God's people have been assured that we are indeed free for Jesus Christ set us free by the power of His blood sacrifice. He gained the victory of death, the grave, and our arch-enemy, Satan, on the cross at Calvary. By this release from the clutches of sin we have been given freedom. But we as a nation have used that freedom to celebrate sin, rather than to proclaim righteousness and hearld the truth of God's Word. Are we not aware that such blatant disregard to "what thus says the Lord" will ultimately lead us back to the pits of enslavement by our adversary the Devil.
Galatians 5:1 says "For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery." Our nation is on an express journey to take up the very yoke Jesus freed us from by His sacrifice of love. Pray for our nation, its leaders, and the people of The United States of America. If we've ever needed the Lord before, we sure do need Him now!
