We are so blessed to call the United States of America home. The freedom we enjoy as Americans is unlike any other country.
But this freedom came at a cost. Liberty was a hard-fought victory. And the battle to keep it continues on 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.
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!
So, as we celebrate the birth of our great nation, let’s read these Bible Verses for the Fourth of July to Set You Free. Each one is a gift God has given us as His children. And a reminder of what Christ has done to set us free!
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men— as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God. Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.
1 Peter 2:15-17
if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:57
Praise the Lord, all you nations;
extol him, all you peoples.
For great is his love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
2 Corinthians 3:17
For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,a]”>[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin— because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
