Liberty

Liberty Bell 1926 Courtesy Wikipedia

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” (Extracted from The Declaration of Independence, In Congress, July 4, 1776)

This week the United States celebrates 239 years of liberty. Flags fly. Fireworks explode. Freedom is the theme. Long before the original thirteen states, now fifty, Apostle Paul spoke of the true meaning of liberty.

We are free in Christ Jesus, the Lord.

Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (2 Corinthians 3:17, Holy Bible, New King James)

Prayer: Thank You, Lord, that there is liberty in You. Amen.
