Freedom – By Lynette Davis
2 Corinthians 3:17 (NLT)
17 For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
All across America this week people will be celebrating with parades, flying flags, family gatherings, picnics and parties. There is a nationwide acknowledgement of what it cost for this nation to be free!
Although many are celebrating freedom this week they may not be experiencing true freedom! Statistics show our country is at epidemic proportions when it comes to addictions and the list is long! Alcohol, drugs, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, pornography, materialism, food and the list goes on!
Unless people have found spiritual freedom through Jesus Christ they are not really free. This weekend while you are attending family BBQ’s, reunions and parties pay attention to who the Holy Spirit is directing you to present with the gospel! Helping someone else find spiritual freedom is really something to celebrate about!
Romans 8:2 (NLT)
2And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed youfrom the power of sin that leads to death.
The Call is for God’s people to pray for each of the first seven days in the seventh month July 1-7. Then on the 7th day, July 7th, we are to pray and fast for 7 hours. The purpose is……
1. For God the Father to restrain, protect, and deliver His people from the evil that has come into our world.
2. For God the Son to be exalted, magnified and glorified in His church, in our nation, and in our lives.
3. For God the Holy Spirit to fall on us in a fresh way, compelling the church to repent of sin and our nation to return to faith in the living God, resulting in a great national spiritual awakening.
Everyone struggles with their identity sometimes and Christians are no exception! Pastor Lew will be starting a new series this week called, “Who Do You Think You Are?” When he opens God’s Word and teaches us who we are in Christ your life will be forever changed! See you there!
