The Good News of Salvation is found in these patriotic Bible Verses for the Fourth of July to Set You Free. I pray they will inspire you during this July 4th holiday.
We are so blessed to call the United States of America home. And we celebrate our independence big!
Backyard barbecues with plates dripping with sauce, ice cream cones melting in the summer heat, and brilliant fireworks displays as far as the eye can see. Fun is the name of the game. But the meaning of this patriotic holiday is bigger than the celebration.
Our freedom came at a cost. Liberty was a hard-fought victory. And the battle to keep it continues even now.
Many of us have loved ones on the front lines and we salute them this Fourth of July. Their courage and commitment to the USA fills our hearts with pride. And we know it’s because of their bravery, we live freely.
So, with the American flag waving in the background, we honor the men and women in uniform both past and present who fought to make us free.
And I think we can all agree that the freedom we enjoy as American citizens is unlike any other place on earth!
But there is another reason to celebrate this time of year.
Independence Day is also a wonderful time to reflect on a different kind of freedom we enjoy.
As Christians, we have liberty in knowing Jesus as our Savior. Because of His sacrifice, we are free from the wages of sin! And we have victory over death!
Yes, true freedom comes from knowing Jesus Christ as our Savior. Through Him, we have forgiveness of sin and complete spiritual freedom!
Once you are a part of the family of God, everything else fades into the night, just like the fireworks in the sky.
By the grace of God, we have been set free!
So, to celebrate the birth of our great nation, all she has to offer, and the perfect gift of salvation in Jesus, I’ve put together a collection of Bible Verses for the Fourth of July to Set You Free.
These uplifting scriptures offer a glimpse of the hope in store for us if we, as a nation turn to God. Each one is a gift God has given us as His children. And a reminder of what Christ has done to set us free!
I pray they will help you see God’s hand reaching out to you as we gear up for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday.
Get your flag out, it’s gonna be epic!
