Every year, most citizens of the United States celebrate a holiday we call Independence Day or also known as the July 4th holiday. On July 2, 1776, Congress voted to declare our independence from Great Britain. Two days later, July 4th 1776, The Declaration of Independence was drafted and published. On August 2nd 1776, fifty-six congressional delegates from the thirteen colonies began the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In 1870, Independence Day was made an unpaid Federal holiday and in 1941, it became a paid Federal holiday. Throughout our nations history, hundreds of thousands have died in pursuit to protect our nations most valuable treasure, FREEDOM!
To declare independence meant that the first continental congress must be willing to protect the shores of a young nation from attacks and be willing to develop a vision to see a nation of opportunity where other immigrants can come and experience freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and hope.
A couple thousand years ago, God designed his own Declaration of Independence for his children. His freedom plan was not about an independence from other nations, but rather, a freedom from the tyranny of Satan. Satan’s main objective is to steal our freedom and destroy our spirituality. God’s main objective is to give us a sustainable relationship that will protect us from the brutal attacks of Satan. God’s freedom plan didn’t come without a price, nor did it come without heartache; but nevertheless God’s determination of freeing his children were more important than any sorrow he would have to endure to declare us free.
Countless millions are searching for independence from a life of spiritual imprisonment. All one has to do is answer this one question: Do you want to break the chains of sin that has kept you in bondage? If YES, keep reading. If NO, stop reading and allow the chains to keep you from experiencing the opportunities to know true happiness. Contentment. Love. Joy. Peace. Kindness. Grace. Forgiveness. Mercy.
If you answered YES, God’s Declaration of Independence will give you the opportunities to experience freedom unlike you have ever known. It does not mean everything will be perfect and without problems in life; however, it does mean that you now have resources that will engage you, empower you, and equip you to live out God, Jesus, and Spirit in your life.
God’s Declaration of Independence:
God's Rescue Plan - Romans 5:6-8, "You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. 8But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
God's Declaration of Independence - Romans 5:9, "Since we have now been justified (Declared Free) by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!"
God's Enduring Freedom - Romans 5:10, "For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!"
To experience eternal freedom, surrender to the Lordship of Jesus and allow the Spirit to lead your life. Freedom in Christ isn’t easy to live out, but worth it in the end!
Remember, Be God Controlled,
