Freedom

Isaiah 62:4 “Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.”

I’m red, white, and blue through and through. I love the United Stated of America, it’s rich history and the ideals upon which it was founded. I’m so grateful for the people who fought and died in order for me to enjoy the freedoms that I have. But the older I get and the crazier the world gets the more I realize I’m no longer a citizen of this world. The words of Beulah Land echo for me.

Beulah Land,

I’m longing for you

And some day on

thee I’ll stand

There my home

shall be eternal

Beulah Land- Sweet Beulah Land

As a Christian I can wrap myself up in the fact that this is not my forever home. It’s just a tiny segment of the eternity that awaits me. When I gave my life to Jesus I became an eternal citizen of Heaven (Philippians 3:20). I have a house there. (John 14:2) I have loved ones waiting on me there. (2 Corinthians 5:8) On God’s timeline I’m already there (Ephesians 2:6). I will one day enter the gates and truly feel at home.

As we celebrate the freedoms we have in this country I pray that you also have the freedom that Christ provides. If you don’t walk in the certainty that there is something better and that your eternity is secure then make today be the day you give your life to Jesus.
