Every July 4th we all celebrate and remember how we gained our freedom as a nation, but I also remember how I gained freedom through Jesus Christ! The Bible tells we are free indeed when Jesus sets us free!!

“ So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.” ( John 8: 36) Free means not to be imprisoned or tied down. Freedom is the state of being free or living free.

When we think of prison, we usually visualize a cell with bars and guards patrolling the halls. But there are other kinds of prison. Many people live in spacious and comfortable homes with all the perks, but they are still in prison. And others serving prison terms behind bars are experiencing freedom because they have found a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Although he was not being held in a material, human prison, David prayed, “ Bring me out of prison so I can thank you” ( Psalm 142: 7).

How about you? Are you experiencing true freedom in Christ or is a certain area in your life keeping you in a “prison”? Consider this … God places a high value on freedom. From the very beginning, he gave us the freedom to choose good or evil, right or wrong, obedience or disobedience. Sadly, Adam and Eve used that freedom to disobey and their disobedience affected the history of humanity. Everyone makes some wrong choices and those poor choices rob us of real freedom. We imprison ourselves in walls of guilt, fear, anxiety, depression, insecurity. The walls vary, but we have all experienced them.

Good news! We can find real freedom! True freedom is in Christ. He died on the cross for our sins. When we receive His forgiveness and make Him Lord of our life, those prison walls can come down. As we learn to trust Jesus, we can be set free from whatever has restricted us and kept us from enjoying the blessings God wants to give us. We will finally be able to grow and become the person God has designed us to be. H a p p y Independence Day and May God bless you!
