On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress adopted the United States Declaration of Independence. This declared the original 13 colonies’ freedom from the oppressive rule of England. We celebrate this emancipation as a nation every year on July 4—and well we should. We live in the freest, greatest, most abundant land of opportunity in the history of the earth.
Do you realize that Paul made a “declaration of independence” in one of the New Testament books that he wrote? We can find it in the book of Romans. Here is my synopsis of it:
• Christ Has Made Us Free from the Letter of the Law (Romans 7:1-6)
• Christ Has Made Us Free from the Frustrations of the Flesh (Romans 7:7-25)
• Christ Has Made Us Free from the Curse of Condemnation (Romans 8:1-11)
Let us daily celebrate the Christian’s declaration of independence!
