If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

II Chronicles 7:14
Dove of Hope
On July 4th, 1776 13 colonies of the British empire said with one great voice we will no longer tolerate the abuse the corruption, the tyranny of the English monarchy. We will no longer stand by and watch as those around are unduly punished and mistreated.
On that day we declared our independence which resulted in the revolutionary war and our freedom from England and all its rule.
As Christians we celebrate another kind of freedom another independence fought for and won by the sacrifice and blood of our Savior Jesus the Christ, Gods only begotten son. We celebrate freedom from sin with all its torments, from strife, and fear. We celebrate freedom from this world with all of it's corrupt and tainted treasures and the joy of our Salvation and the life it brings.
But there are others who are still fighting for their independence, for their freedom from the oppression of this world and the trouble that it brings. They are fighting for that which we so often take for granted a life in Christ.
This struggle is taking place not only in other countries where speaking of Christ is not only illegal but can be punished by imprisonment and even death but is taking place around the corner or maybe even right next to you. This battle may be freedom from addiction, or hatred, or from lust, or unforgiveness, It may be freedom from persecution because of skin color, age or mentality. It may be due to that the fact that they are different from others, or just don't fit into what we consider the norm.
Whatever the battle it is our duty as sons and daughters of the most Holy God to help fight that battle to give them hope to encourage them, and to give what they need to fight this battle and that is Christ himself.
Let us help those who are less fortunate and les informed and Share the truth of what we know. Let us not hoard what God has so freely given us. Let us give to them the Truth for Christ said I am the way the Truth and the life, he also said that we would know the Truth and the Truth will set us free. Only through the Gospel of Truth can anyone truly find freedom either in this world or the next. Let us break down the barriers and help set others fre so that they can truly celebrate their independence as we do.
Freedom in Christ
