With Independence Day happening this week, it’s got me thinking about our freedoms. I’m sure you can come up with plenty of them off the top of your head: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of privacy. Those are all amazingly great things! I’ve been focused on the freedom I get in Jesus.
Jesus frees me from my own worry and anxiety. Moving to Las Vegas from Twin Falls, Idaho was a BIG change for my family and it came at great expense; not just financially… but we knew that God was calling us to where we are today. However, as life goes, we often get pulled down into our own worries. What about the bills, relationships, to-do lists? Then I'm reminded of what the Bible says:
“Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” - Galatians 5:1
Jesus Christ has liberated us from worry. We never have to be a slave to it ever again if we simply put our lives into His hands on a daily basis.
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” -1 Peter 5:7
That's TRUE freedom.
