Reflections from the Bishop’s Desk
July is the month for celebrating our independence from Great Britain. We take pride in the meaning and principle of the word called freedom; we declare it to be our inalienable right. Our history is well-documented with international and internal wars fought for our freedoms. We observe in May some of them that were fought and remember lives lost for such a cause. I thank Almighty God for the freedom we have in this country to worship freely.
As I reflect on our celebration, I call to mind the greatest war fought for the freedom of all humankind. This war was fought and won on a hill called Calvary, on an old rugged cross.
Saints our freedom is not temporal. It is not recorded in men’s constitution but penned in the book given by God— “whom the Son set free, is free indeed.” Let us enjoy the occasion but consider the freedom to have a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ, which is the ultimate and eternal freedom that our hearts and souls desire.
