[Live] as free people, [yet] without employing your freedom as a pretext for wickedness; but [live at all times] as servants of God. 1 Peter 2:16, AMPC
Happy 4th of July! Today, let’s remember the price that was paid and the blood that was shed to purchase our independence; and let’s continue to pray for those who have the authority to uphold our freedoms.
Most importantly, let's remember the price Jesus paid and the blood He shed to set us free! He provided the ultimate freedom for all who receive and believe in Him. As followers of Christ, let’s believe God, take Him at His Word and do what 1 Peter tells us, “Live as free people….”
Today, give Jesus thanks and live…
Free from sin.
Free from guilt.
Free from the curse.
Free from condemnation.
Free from inferiority.
Free from shame.
Free from the fear of man.
Free from oppression and depression.
Free from the fear of death.
Free from bondage and addictions.
Free from discouragement.
Free from sickness and poverty.
Free from anxieties and panic.
Free from all the power of the enemy.
Happy Independence Day! As you celebrate, remember that Jesus has set us free!
Say It: “Father, I thank You for all those who shed their blood to provide for my independence. I pray for all those in authority – may they uphold our God-given rights and freedoms. Most of all, I thank You for the freedom that came into my life because of Jesus and His shed blood. I will live as a free person and I will serve You with gladness! In Jesus' Name. Amen."
