Happy July 1st! As Americans, we are getting ready to celebrate our nation’s birthday and the freedom upon which it was built. July 4th is a monumental day is many ways. However, no human organization is perfect, and we have seen our nation’s shortcomings in many ways these past few months. Yet the truth is that true freedom is only found in Christ. We cannot manufacture or guarantee it as a people, government, organization, or movement. Only Jesus Christ can give it to us. Therefore, as we celebrate freedom this weekend, I want to bring our attention to the freedom we have in Christ by sharing a worship song on this topic.
Before we can enter into the holy place of worship, we must prepare our hearts. Worship isn’t like attending a meeting where all you have to do is show up. On the contrary, true worship requires preparation on both the part of the worship leader and the worshipers.
This song has been circling around in my head for the last week or so. While it hasn’t always been a favorite of mine, God really impressed it upon my heart recently. The most powerful part (and my favorite!) is the chorus:
How wonderful, how glorious
My Savior’s scars, victorious
My chains are gone, my debt is paid
From death to life and grace to grace
