To Fight For Freedom

29 Aug

To Fight For Freedom…

Chanukah means the Feast of Dedication. It is also called the Festival of Light also known as the Festival of Freedom.

Why Freedom? Because of an ungodly man, Antiochus Epiphanes. He made it illegal to keep the Sabbath, to learn God’s Word and to follow God’s commandments.

And it seemed as if he would have succeeded except that a group of those who sought to be faithful to God rose up against him. It took faith, courage, and the risking of their lives.

In that faith and courage, in God’s power, they won the fight and gained freedom for themselves and all Israel. God has called you to freedom but freedom means a fight. If you are truly to know freedom in your life, you must fight.

Do you want to overcome that bondage, that sin? Good, are you willing to fight for it? Are you willing to sacrifice for the victory? If so, then good. God has not called you to slavery but to freedom.

Therefore do not submit to a yoke of slavery but freedom requires a fight. For God has called you to be a FREEDOM FIGHTER.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

Seek to live in freedom today – freedom from the past – freedom from bondage – freedom from sin.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
