Message for July 4, 2021 from Pastor Shirley

2 Corinthians 3:17 “Now the Lord is the spirit and where the spirit of the Lord is there is freedom.                             When you accepted Jesus God gave you a new nature and filled you with his spirit.  The spirit of the Lord dwells in you and you are free. Our freedom comes because of Christ’s saving work and the spirit that he gave us.  Freedom is not personal independence-the ability to make our own decisions and choose our own path in life.  The freedom that Jesus said is ours is not doing whatever we want whenever we want.  He was freeing us to do what we ought to do as believers.  This is liberating us to walk in relationship with God and go and be the people he created us to be. 
Peter Marshall, Before the U.S. Senate – Prayer Lord Jesus, thou who art the way, the truth, and the life; hear us as we pray for the truth that shall make all free. Teach us that liberty is not only to be loved but also to be lived. Liberty is too precious a thing to be buried in books. It costs too much to be hoarded. Help us see that our liberty is not the right to do as we please, but the opportunity to please to do what is right.
