A Sunday Afternoon

The wife and I returned from worship service at Carr Lane Baptist just minutes ago.  We had a great worship service, with patriotic songs, the pledge to “old glory” and the message on 2 Corinthians 3:17;

 “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

To begin the message I read Patrick Henry’s address to the House on March 23, 1775 where he said, “As for me; give me liberty, or give me death”.  This was said as there was debate in the house about whether to face the invading British military in battle or surrender and be enslaved to them.

The only liberty available to mankind can be found in Jesus Christ.  Without Christ you can be free yet bound.  With Christ you can be bound yet free.

Thank God for the freedoms we have in this nation.  It is He who has given them to us.
