Now that we have just finished celebrating our freedom, “What’s Next?” We begin again to get back into the everyday routine of life. Isn’t living more than watching an evening of fireworks, having cookouts, visiting with family and friends? All of these things are fun, but what about real living? What I mean is what brings you more joy in living? Our relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important thing we can have. He brings love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. What else could we ask for? Jesus said, I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly. So the question is, are you living the Abundant Life? Jesus gave his life on the cross of Calvary so you and I could enjoy the blessing of Salvation. As we celebrate the holidays, let us remember to celebrate our Spiritual Freedom every day. Throughout the nations of the world, millions of dollars were spent on fireworks. The excitement of July 4th has all passed until another year, but the joy and excitement that Christ brings will last a lifetime and into eternity.
We serve a loving savior and because of God’s wonderful grace, we can all be forgiven and set free from the bondage of sin. There’s an old song that has the title, “What A Savior.” The first verse says, “Once I was straying in sin’s dark valley; No hope within could I see. They searched through Heaven and found a Savior to save a poor lost soul like me.” Thank God for his unfailing love. Wherever you are in the journey of life, my God loves you and wants to have a relationship with you. His forgiveness is available to all who ask for it. In 1st John 1:9, God’s word says, if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
