II Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is that spirit: and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
Over the past few days this verse has played repeatedly in my mind as we celebrate the birth of our nation and our freedom here. But this freedom we are celebrating today is not eternal.
On the other hand, the Lord, our savior Jesus Christ, gives us a freedom that is eternal. He gives us freedom from our mistakes, discouragements, disappointments, failures and especially from our sins. When we accept the Lord into our heart, He comes to live within us; we are His dwelling place.
Those who think only on the things of this world dwell in the bondage of sin and darkness; but we who are the Lord’s children has the His spirit dwelling within us, giving us hope and peace. Even though we live in this world we are not of this world. Just as the verse above says; the Lord is that Spirit and where the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty (freedom). If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your savior, you are living in His glorious freedom. Though the world be in the bondage of sin we, His children, are free. Free to enjoy all the glorious blessings that comes from being in His child.
If you have not accepted the Lord as your Savior; I encourage you to do so today, then you also can start living in all the peace and blessings that only comes from being His child.
God Bless You All Today and Always,
