“Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” – John 8:36
Do you consider yourself free from earthly chains? How are you utilizing and exercising your freedom every day?
July 4th is celebrated each year in America to commemorate America’s freedom from the tyranny of the British rule and its declaration to self-government. It was on July 4th, 1776 when members of the continental congress met in Philadelphia to adopt the Declaration of Independence. Those who signed this document showed great courage since signing it was an act of treason to the British Crown, and punishable by death. There is a price to pay for freedom. Though the 13 colonies declared themselves free from British rule in 1776, their freedom did not follow immediately; instead, the War of Independence, also known as the Revolutionary War, followed. True freedom came at the end of the Revolutionary War. Many died so that America could be free from the tyranny of the British crown.
