Independence — A Great Word

“Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom).” — II Cor. 3:17


… From England

… From Satan

… From the temptations of my flesh


Independence to choose, for God has willed us free choice, independence to do right or wrong, take the narrow path to His kingdom, or the wide highway to hell.

Independence to believe the Word’s truth, or the enemy’s many, many lies.

Independence to follow He who is the way, the truth and the life through whom alone we have access to the Father, or believe the enemy of our soul who comes to steal, kill and destroy.

Independence: to choose, to believe, to follow.

Independence. A great word.

It’s a word “born” at the cross. For without Christ’s sacrifice on that cross, true independence would be impossible to grasp.

Happy Independence Day!
