Does anything feel better than being who you are? Feeling free to be you? The you who you truly are?!
The 4th of July is a day about freedom . . . the day our country declared independence from Great Britain, being no longer under its control. Since the king’s laws were unfair, the people wanted freedom to govern themselves. And even though it took a while, they finally became free!
What’s so awesome is we can be free, too . . . from worry, fear, what others think of us, just to name a few . . . But for all that to happen, we need to receive Christ into our hearts and trust Him as our Savior and Lord. Maybe you’ve already done that, and if so, that is great! But if you haven’t just yet, just know that He wants to set you free from sin, or going your own way, since that separates you from Him. And once you ask Him into your heart, you’ll be at the start of an amazing adventure. Just imagine . . . a relationship with the Creator of the universe and your Heavenly Father. And what’s amazing is when you turn your life over to Him, you totally become free! . . . free to be who you love to be . . . to be uniquely you . . . the you who you truly are!
So how does that work? Well, only God who created you and the entire universe could work that all out! The more I surrender, the more me I become! I can be free from fear or worry, knowing He knows what’s best for me and what I truly desire. And the same is true for you!
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
So how will you celebrate the 4th with your family and friends? A picnic? Baseball? Bar-b-que? Of course, fireworks, too! When you take a moment to remember what this day’s all about, don’t forget to celebrate your freedom in Christ and freedom to be you!
