July 4th · Law

independence day…

Yesterday’s worship at church… intertwined with the patriotic…
reminders of the faith-filled roots of our nation…

One of the songs… America, the Beautiful
in the lyrics… echoes of our nation’s roots in Him…

O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern impassion’d stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

—Katharine Lee Bates, 1913
Thy liberty in law… this is His way…
The freeing of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt…
came with Ten Commandments… Leviticus… Deuteronomy…
law… law… law…
Within the law… liberty is secured…
Other nations use law to control…
in the USA… as in Jesus…
liberty… freedom… found in the law…
Live as people who are free, not using your freedom
as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.
1 Peter 2:16 ESV
Remember this day… 
on our nation’s birthday…
it is He who made the Way…
for freedom…

Speaking of freedom…
I’m exercising mine… along with a sister in faith…
Beginning tomorrow… Tuesday… July 5…
