Liberty - Sing and Dance for Joy!

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

America really knows how to celebrate its independence. We do it on July 4th, and oh what a day it is! In our small mountain community of Julian, CA, we block off Main Street and have a parade. It’s a lot of fun because there are no professional floats, just a bunch of Americans decorating their old cars, tractors, wagons, flatbeds, pickup trucks,  motorcycles, bicycles, tricycles, or just plain walking down the street, to celebrate our liberty. There’s a lot of flag waving, music, dancing, not to mention all sorts of entertainment around town. Julian sure knows how to party!

It’s good to have days of celebration to remember our freedom and those whose blood was shed to pay it. But there’s one work of freedom that we need to remember as well - the price paid for our spiritual freedom. 

So here’s my plan for the 4th: I’m going to break out the confetti, turn up the music, and celebrate freedom. We were bought with a price; we were set free from the law of sin and death; our mourning has been turned to joy. Let’s all celebrate. If the Son has made us free, we are free indeed!

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1
