Despite the fashionable clamor to cleanse our nation’s historical iconography of any vestige of a Christian Worldview, the task of erasing scripture from our national monuments is monumental. For example, the Liberty Bell at Independence National Park in Philadelphia draws its name from its inscription,”Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants thereof. (Leviticus 25:10)”
As you gather with friends and family this Fourth of July weekend, take time to follow this admonition. Proclaim liberty to the captives – proclaim a freedom which is beyond political choice and personal freedom. Remembering the scriptures;
“Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:36
“For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1
Be intentional about practicing hospitality this weekend and over the holiday with those the Lord has placed in your sphere of influence. Proclaim freedom in Christ to unbelievers, disbelievers and believers alike.
