Celebrating Freedom

Among the freedoms we recently celebrated is the freedom to worship who, where, when, and how we choose. This great country was founded on the principles of freedom and built on the practice of Christianity. I am grateful to live in a country where individual freedom is valued. God first established free will when he placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and gave them the choice to obey or disobey his command. Because they were deceived by Satan, they chose disobedience and the rest, as they say, is history. Joshua confronted the Israelites with that same choice before they crossed over to the Promised Land and made it known that his choice was to serve God. Each of us is faced with the same question. Will we remain in bondage to sin or receive the freedom Christ offers? You have freedom of choice. Will you choose freedom?

“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36, KJV).
