Thank You for Freedom
Galatians 5:1 KJV
Stand fast therefore in the liberty (freedom) wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage (slavery).
There is no greater feeling of liberation than to experience the freedom from sin and death that You, Father, have provided through Christ Jesus. Today my voice and my heart are free to praise You for this, and I am immensely grateful. Forty-five years ago, I was “Born Again” by the Spirit of God working in my life. This was the first truly free Fourth of July celebration I had ever experienced and I will forever be thankful.
On this Independence Day, I am reminded of all those who have sacrificed for my freedom, following the example of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Let me never take my freedom for granted, physically or spiritually. May I call to mind my freedom was purchased with an immeasurable worth, others’ lives. Thank you, Father, for giving the ultimate sacrifice, Your perfect sinless Son, for a sinner like me.
I want to express my sincere appreciation to my God for allowing me the awesome opportunity of being an American and for the wonderful life Christ has given me. I am free from the bondage of sin according to Galatians 5:1, and privileged to live in the land of the free. Though the men and women that have given their lives for freedom’s sake were not my personal friends, I am thankful for their extreme sacrifice, and love of liberty. The sacrificial death of Christ upon the cross was an expression of Jesus’ love for me and evidence of His selfless mercy and infinite grace He has freely given.

Lord, bless those who continue to give their lives for my freedom and grant me the opportunity to lead others to true freedom that can only be found in knowing You through the Gospel of Christ by faith.
