July always brings to mind freedom. It is in this month that we celebrate the declaration of our freedom from Great Britain as congress passed the Declaration of Independence well over 200 years ago. Of course, a long and bloody war raged for many years to finally settle this freedom, but the British eventually surrendered and the United States became an independent nation.
Long before this, the Apostle Paul reminded a small group of believers in Galatia that they were a free people because of Jesus Christ. “It is for freedom that Christ has set you free” (5:1a). In this context Paul urges the people not to reverse course and pick up the Law again because Jesus has freed them from it.
However, he also goes on to remind his readers that this freedom is not a license to sin, but to “serve one another in love” (v.13). As you ponder your freedom as an American citizen, also ponder your freedom in Jesus Christ. It is a freedom from meaningless, empty, man-made religious observation and in its place a freedom to love, serve, and honor one another. Enjoy and celebrate your freedom!
Grace and Peace,
