I went to a political rally today. My second in about 20 years. Well, actually my second in 52 years I guess! 🙂

I am thankful that I live in a country where freedom abounds. I was able to attend the political rally without fear of repercussions. There were protestors from the other party outside the rally area and they were free to be there without fear of repercussions.

Thank You, Lord, for allowing me to live in a free land.

Thank You, Lord, for the even greater freedom you provide through Jesus. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free (Galatians 5:1). Knowing Christ sets us free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:1-2). It sets us free from being held captive as a slave to sin. It sets us free from having to pleasing anyone but the Lord. While simultaneously enabling us to freely choose to be a servant of all. What an amazing God!

 Romans 8:1-4
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the spirit.

Romans 6:17-18
But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
