Liberty

It is during the month of July in particular that we recall the word “liberty", particularly the “liberty” that was won so our country could be free from British authority.  This “Liberty” allowed a new country to be born; relieving its citizens from oppression and granting individual rights and freedoms in this great nation.

A similarity can be drawn with our spiritual man.  There is spiritual “Liberty” that is obtained through salvation by the grace of Jesus Christ!  Jesus can free the soul from the greatest bondage ever known to mankind which is the bondage of sin.

In the book to the Galatians of the new testament the Apostle Paul writes:

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.(Gal 5:1 KJV)

We must understand that while we have freedom in Christ, there is also great responsibility in doing our best to maintain this freedom.  We have the duty of honoring God with all of our “heart” as we navigate through life.  We should not act careless but always remember Jesus’ great sacrifice for us and always live for Him.  The warning here is our freedom can be lost by entangling ourselves again with the yoke of bondage.

Paul goes on to write:

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.(Gal 5:13 KJV)

Let us remember now and always the bondage we have been called from and the care and diligence required to maintain the liberty we enjoy, both in this nation and in the service to our savior.
