Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God. (1 Peter 2:16 ESV)
Dear Heavenly Father, Freedom is fragile when it’s promised by man. The only true source of freedom is found in You through Jesus Christ. Today, as we celebrate our nation’s birthday amid ongoing threats to our rights and freedoms, let us remember this: You did not give us life for us to live it in fear, but You gave us life to live in freedom… even to the point that it’s our choice — our free will — of whether we accept Jesus as our personal Savior. So many are living in bondage, having not accepted the very Truth that will free them. Please, Lord, send revival. Let it wash over our country and our world and bring more people to the freedom found in Jesus. In His Name, Amen.
