Worship Wednesdays - FREEDOM

I thought it fitting to start this new series called "Worship Wednesdays" on Independence Day;  the day when we celebrate the beginning of this great country and when we are thankful for the many freedoms given to us.  In this series I will focus on one word, thought or lesson and I will feature a modern Christian song that relates to the focus of the day.

Let's begin by defining WORSHIP - the feeling or expression of adoration for a deity.  Adoration, love, devotion, adulation, glorify, exalt, praise.

There are many ways to worship God but in this series it will be through music.

“Seven times a day I praise you.” 

Psalm 119:164

FREEDOM - the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.  Liberty, liberation, release, deliverance.

The ultimate freedom comes from Jesus Christ.  It is through the sacrifice made by God's only Son Jesus: by dying on the cross and taking the punishment for all of our sins so that we ALL might have eternal life.  Guilt and shame weigh us down and make it impossible to truly live and experience FREEDOM.  God's grace and mercy is the only way to true freedom through forgiveness.
