Freedom and Fireworks



Red white and blue
Hot dogs and hamburgers
And parades

We celebrate our freedom.

But I can’t help but wonder
If we’re living in freedom
When we’re slaves to

Our own messed up desires.

Being an American does not make me free,
Though I thank God for the freedoms this country allows
And the soldiers who have lived and died to secure that freedom.

Being a follower of Christ makes me free,
Because God has rescued me from myself.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
– 2 Corinthians 3:17

  1. beautifully stated!!

  2. Nice! Remarkably similar to my sermon yesterday! Basically I said, we can be a slave to ourselves (solitary confinement) or slaves of Christ (free.) Rock on…

  3. Very cool, Brian. I like the solitary confinement parallel. Wish we could've been there to hear the sermon! Is it recorded?
