INDEPENDENCE DAY

HOPE TO COPE 🦋


INDEPENDENCE DAY

By: Donna Lind


“It is for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore, keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1


JULY 4TH INDEPENDENCE DAY.


THE DAY EACH YEAR THAT MY COUNTRY, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CELEBRATES THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE.


OUR NATION WAS FOUGHT FOR AND FOUNDED BY GREAT MEN OF GOD WHO BELIEVED THAT “ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL AND ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, THAT AMONG THEM ARE LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.”

LET’S TALK ABOUT LIBERTY TODAY.


LIBERTY IS ANOTHER WORD FOR FREEDOM.


FREEDOM, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND OUR AMERICAN FLAG REPRESENTS TO OUR COUNTRY.


AS CHRISTIANS, THE CROSS REPRESENTS FREEDOM.


WE RECEIVED OUR FREEDOM OR LIBERTY, FROM OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, WHO HUNG ON A CROSS, SHED HIS BLOOD, AND DIED FOR US SO THAT WE COULD BE SET FREE FROM THE CHAINS OF SIN THAT KEEP US TANGLED UP IN BONDAGE.


JESUS RESCUED US FROM THE SLAVERY OF SIN.


EVEN THOUGH WE STILL BATTLE WITH BONDAGES OF ADDICTIONS, AFFLICTIONS, AND A GAMUT OF OTHER ISSUES WE STRUGGLE WITH DAILY, WE ARE NO LONGER SLAVES TO THESE SINS BECAUSE JESUS PAID THE PRICE FOR OUR FREEDOM.


HOWEVER, WE HAVE A TENDENCY TO PICK THOSE SINS BACK UP, TIME AND TIME AGAIN.


THAT’S WHAT THE VERSE IN GALATIANS HERE IS TALKING ABOUT.


DON’T GET YOURSELF TANGLED BACK UP AGAIN IN THE BAD BEHAVIORS AND BAD CHOICES THAT JESUS CAME TO SET YOU FREE FROM!


INDEPENDENCE DAY FOR BELIEVERS IS THE DAY THAT YOU CHOOSE TO LAY YOUR BURDENS, BONDAGES AND BAGGAGE AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS AND LET JESUS BREAK YOUR CHAINS AND SET YOU FREE - TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOR ETERNITY.


UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THE BLOOD AND THE CROSS WE WOULDN’T HAVE AN INDEPENDENCE DAY.


With JESUS there is always HOPE TO COPE,

Donna Lind ❤️
