Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17 NIV).
God’s Spirit, the Holy Spirit of creation that makes miracles and saves, is what we receive upon salvation. That’s right–the very Spirit of our Lord resides within us, and in Him we find freedom and perfect love!
Before salvation our spirit was crushed and devastated by sin, but Jesus’ blood has cleansed us and made us pure. We are now free from the chains and bondage of sin. It does not matter what you went through or what lies ahead, because God is always there to guide you and comfort you in His Spirit. With God, anything is possible!
As you celebrate your Independence Day, I just want this Bible verse to be in your heart this weekend. Not only can you celebrate your patriotic freedom, but you can also celebrate the freedom the gospel of Jesus Christ brings!
Love, Emily <3
