July 4th is traditionally the day that the United States of America celebrates the freedom of our country. And we should celebrate. As Americans, we have privileges that are denied to others in many other countries.
But there is a freedom that many of us as Christians often take for granted; our freedom from the penalty of sin. When we celebrate the LORD's Supper, it is a celebration of that freedom. But many will take off from church on Communion Sunday for the 4th of July, to prepare for the affairs of that day.
When we put more emphasis on celebrating our national freedom than we do our spiritual freedom, then we are not free "indeed" or truly free.
