This month we celebrate and appreciate freedom as we celebrate our great nation's independence. America is a blessed nation, and if blessed, we are blessed to be a blessing. I'm proud of America's unrelenting endeavor to bring peace and freedom, and proud of the brave men and women who serve the cause of freedom at home and around the world. True freedom, both naturally and spiritually comes at a price and must be fought for. Freedom is a huge responsibility. As a nation and as believers, we can't take it lightly.
The Apostle Paul writes in his Epistle to the Galatians that, "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free." It's a rather simple saying yet it comes with instructions. Paul goes on to instruct in his letter by saying, "Stand firm then and do not let yourselves be entangled again by slavery." This amazing and life altering revelation opens up every possibility and opportunity imaginable as true freedom should! But instructions follow the revelation. We have been freed, now we must stand firm. It's each of our personal responsibilities to stand firm in order to live free.
Pastor Mindy and I stand strong with you as we together fight the good fight of faith and endeavor to take ground for the Kingdom of God in the earth. We are so blessed with your commitment to New Life and it's reach to our community, and to people around the world that are learning to live free and to live independent of the oppressor. The Lord continues to perform great miracles at New Life. Continue believing God's best for our church and His best for your lives individually. We never stop thanking God for you and know that His grace and love is always with you.
