Have you thought about the American flag and all that it stands for? It represents an emblem of the greatest nation on the earth. It has been carried through centuries in battle. It is placed on the graves of our honored dead who fought for the right for us to remain a free nation, and it flies high during peace times, and as well as war. “Old Glory” is its name. There is another real freedom we can have. We can display it every day of the year, and that is our freedom “In Christ” to live a life to glorify Him, so that His banner of love, truth and peace can be seen by all. It is a flag flown high in the castle of my heart (taken from a song). We can be free in our spirit to serve the Creator of the whole universe and that my friends is True Freedom.
Romans 8:2 says, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from th law of sin and death.”
Just like the flag that represents freedom, Jesus is a banner over us, protecting and shielding us. He is the “Glory and the Lifter of our heads”at all times. Let freedom ring out in your heart today.
Psalm 3:3 reads, “But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.”
