What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
The above statement was made by one of the founding Fathers Patrick Henry during the Revolutionary War. He stirred the people with his passion for liberty. Liberty is to be free, have independence and the right to choose.
One of the things I took note about the church service yesterday was the liberty and the freedom to not only praise but also to worship. Worship was proficient with people praising God, lifting hands, clapping, leaping and moving in the gifts of the Spirit. God’s glory was in union with His people. This experience was uplifting, encouraging and faith increasing. Many people were prayed over and I am excited to see how people will be blessed not only in a Spiritual sense but also mentally, physically and financially. It was so moving to see people run to God with liberty. People were motivated by His Spirit to reach out and step into another dimension of faith.
The condition of those who enjoy and believe the gospel is happy, for the heart is set at liberty to run the ways of God’s commandments. They have light, and with open face they behold the glory of the Lord. Christians should prize and improve these privileges. We should not rest contented without knowing the transforming power of the gospel, by the working of the Spirit, bringing us to seek to be like and in union with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
II Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit and where the Spirit is there is liberty.
