Happy 4th of July to all my American viewers! This Independence Day (or whatever day it may be for you) let’s take some time to remember that true freedom is only found in God. Pray for God to lead you deeper into His freedom, and pray for your country.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”–Galatians 5:1

This verse isn’t referring to physical slavery (which we’ll be bringing up soon), but it is talking about slavery to sin, legalism, and other things that don’t honor God. Christ set us free so we can be truly free from all chains holding us from Him and His will for us. And we shouldn’t let anything else trap us again, for we belong to Him. He bought our freedom.
