Are you celebrating your TRUE citizenship?
Hello, everyone! May you all have a wonderful day celebrating our freedom. Just as our American freedom was bought by blood and war, so is our Christian liberty. Jesus purchased our freedom from eternal death by pouring out his life in exchange for ours even though he had never done anything wrong! Think of John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” God, the Creator of the Universe loved us so much, even when we had turned our backs on Him and become evil, that to save us from eternal separation from Him, He sent His only Son to die our death. To free us! And that is the best freedom of all! Although I am truly grateful for my freedom as an American citizen, I am even more thankful for my liberty where my true citizenship is—heaven! Thank you, Jesus, that I am free and forgiven despite my many sins! Thank you that I have my true citizenship in heaven and that you sent your perfect son to give me this freedom from Satan's grasp!
