As I sat with friends watching the fireworks burst overhead and their sparkling reflections in the lake below, I thanked God for the privilege of living in a free country. Most of this world’s people do not experience the freedoms we enjoy and often take for granted. But, one freedom available to all of us, no matter where we live or under what conditions, is freedom in Christ. More than the freedom to do our own thing (lawfully), is the freedom Christ offers. Christ frees us from our own personal prisons of sinfulness. He offers freedom from our sin, guilt and shame. What a priceless freedom that is! It cost him, of course, as most freedoms do, but nothing, not even his own life, stood between him and his love for us. Let his freedom not only ring, but reign!
