There is Freedom

By Chris Baxter



All things were created by Him and for Him  (Col. 2:!6)


There is freedom in the outstretched wings of an eagle.

There is freedom in the stars and the stripes;

There is freedom in one nation under God's guidance;

There is freedom forever in Christ.         


There is freedom in the downpour of rain on the earth;

There is freedom in the ocean wave’s rolling ride;

There is freedom in a river flowing forever onward;

There is freedom forever in Christ.


There is freedom in the blossom of spring’s first flower;

There is freedom in the butterfly’s flitty flight;

There is freedom in the song of the sweet red birds;

There is freedom forever in Christ.  

       

There is freedom in the first steps out of a dungeon;

There is freedom in allowing a caged bird to fly;

There is freedom when any stronghold is broken,

There is freedom forever in Christ.


There is freedom in the all-out race of an athlete;

There is freedom in the dancer’s twirl of graceful might;

There is freedom in performing any God –given talent;

There is freedom forever in Christ.


There is freedom in bellowing out a favorite love song;

There is freedom in one long blubbering cry;

There is freedom in gut-wrenching, knee-slapping laughter with a friend;

There is freedom forever in Christ.


There is freedom in a hammock beneath a thriving shade tree;

There is freedom in a screen porch with a chair, rocking, inside;

There is freedom in a lazy, old, painted bench swing;

There is freedom forever in Christ.


There is freedom in a newborn’s first plea for a start on this earth;

There is freedom in finding God’s call for one's life;

There is freedom in a believer’s last breath that he takes;

There is freedom forever in Christ.

It takes obedience

(Paul defends himself before Agrippa), "So then, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the vision from heaven. First to those in Damascus, then to those in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and to the Gentiles also, I preached that they should repent and turn to God and prove their repentance by their deeds. This is why the Jews seized me in the temple courts and tried to kill me. But I have had God's help to this very day, and so I stand here and testify to the small and great alike." Acts 26:19-22

Dear Lord,

When we hear from you, whether it's directly from your word or through someone's biblical teaching or by the prompting of your Spirit, give us the desire to obey your commands. Make us willing to speak about who you are so others can come to know you as Savior. Prevail in, through, and around us. Amen.
