Scripture for the Day (July 4, 2018)
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom]. (2 Corinthians 3:17, Amplified Bible)
We are truly blessed to be citizens of the United States of America, the home of the free and the brave. We should never forget that the freedom we enjoy was not free. It was paid for with the blood of many American soldiers and patriots. We are also truly blessed to be citizens of a heavenly kingdom where true liberty and true freedom resides eternally. That freedom was also not free. It was paid for by the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ.
One of the things that effected my youngest son the most was when he went on a missions trip to a country that is not as blessed and free as we are. When he returned and exited the plane in the United States he literally kissed the ground. He was so happy to be back in this country. I wish every American could experience that.
The following link is to a teaching on liberty by Retired Lt. Colonel Allen West that was made at Dr. Michael Youssef’s church (The Church of the Apostles) in Atlanta GA. It is well worth listening to. It is frank and to the point about liberty and our great nation. This message will be our devotional for today on this July 4, 2018 Independence Day.
