Am I free?

The old plan is finished. The rules, the regulations, the spirit of religion. It is done with. I was called to be free. There is a new plan. I only need to know one thing. I must love.

That is it. That is the plan. That is the agreement my Father has with me. That is the agreement I have with those I know. That is the real deal.

You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Galatians 5:13-15 NIV

Why are we here? What is our purpose in life? We are to love GOD and love everyone we come in contact with every day.

And, we have a responsibility to pass on the freedom we have in Jesus to our children.

“The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children.” ~William Havard

My dad, a defender of freedom and independence. Born on the fourth of July 1919.

My dad, Everett Wiley Wilson, was born on Independence Day (July 4) in 1919. This is a photo of him from WWII, defending our freedom. He would be 93 today. God bless him, and men and women like him, who defend our freedom.

A great man of GOD.

“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.” ~~Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Yes, we did produce a near perfect Republic. But will they keep it? Or will they in the enjoyment of plenty lose the memory of Freedom? Material abundance without character is the surest way to destruction.” ~Thomas Jefferson

Do I have true freedom?

Not only has He healed my heart, He has set it free. That freedom leads me to run in the path of His desire for my life. His freedom leads to my commitment to do what He wants for me.

Freedom leading to willing obedienceis His way. And I run in it!! Willingly. Gladly.

 I run in the path of your commands,
for you have set my heart free.
Psalm 119:32
