Tomorrow we celebrate the birth of this nation, and many claim that we still have the freedoms that were given us in 1776. But true freedom is very little understood, even by most Christians. Paul understood real freedom and wants us also to grasp the real implication of true freedom that has been provided at extreme cost.
“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery” (Galatians 5:1).
Freedoms provided by any government are wonderful and useful, ONLY as they lead people to the moral freedom we have through God’s Son. Without that freedom, earthly freedoms will be misused for selfish gain and personal agendas that distort and even deny the pure gospel of grace in Jesus Christ.
The strong exhortation of Paul is to “stand firm” in this freedom ALONE!
