In a few days, we Americans will gather across our nation at parades, picnics, and fireworks displays to celebrate our declaration of independence from our mother country, England. While planning for such enjoyable activities, my mind wandered to another symbol of freedom, The Cross.
How many celebrants do not realize they are captives of Satan’s deathly grip, yet have true freedom at the foot of The Cross? (Colossians 2:13-15) How many do not realize because someone never took the time the tell them? How many of us will take the time? (Matthew 28:19-20, Romans 10:14-15)
