Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Just this past weekend was the Fourth of July, and we have celebrated the independence and the freedoms we have as Americans. Many men and women have sacrificed their lives for these freedoms that we get to enjoy. God has truly blessed this nation; however, as we have freedoms in America, God has given us freedom through Christ. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice for us when He died on the cross and paid our sin debt. Paul encourages us to stand fast in the liberty we have through Christ. Today, we hold on to the promise that if we have received Christ as our Savior, we have freedom in Him. There may be freedoms that get taken away from us, but the freedom we have through Jesus is eternal.
