Independence Day. It’s a day we Americans celebrate our freedom from Great Britain. While that was a great day in our nation’s history I can’t help but ask the question, are we REALLY free? I remember telling my older sister, “You’re not the boss of me.” There are many who say this in a work environment. Our kids probably say it all the time to their siblings. We need to teach our kids that we are ALL slaves. We’re either slaves to sin or slaves to the cross of righteousness. Apart from Christ, we claim we’re free to do what we want. In Christ, we crave righteousness found in Christ and Scripture alone. While today we celebrate freedom, remind our families we’re slaves to a Master who also calls us His friend and made us heirs.
