Freedom in Christ
WORSHIP AT HOME | JULY 5 – Freedom Sunday
The Preamble to the Declaration of Independence states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” God’s word, through the mouthpiece of the Prophet Micah states, “What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” And, through the Apostle Paul in Romans 8:1-2, “There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.” We are endowed by our Creator with Rights; required by our Creator to act justly, love mercy, walk with God with a humble spirit; and, we have been set free from sin by the grace of God. Freedom granted comes with a responsibility to practice it while loving our neighbors.
