This 4th of July marks the 242nd anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, a historic document ending British rule and proclaiming a free
and independent United States of America.
As we celebrate independence this 4th of July, let us not forget the source of our TRUE personal freedom, Jesus Christ. Only when we give
our lives to Christ can we experience lasting joy and peace, the products of real freedom. Only when we tear off the bondage of sin can we put on the new, free self of righteousness,
kindness, compassion, and forgiveness. We can then say along with Paul, "through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death" (Romans 8:2).
