The most famous mountain in the world is Mt. Everest. People are drawn to it from all over the world, and more than 300 of them have died trying to reach the summit. But there is another hill just outside Jerusalem called the place of the skull or the hill of death. That is where Jesus died for the sins of the world, and in order to be saved, you do not have to climb that hill… all you need to do is bow at His feet and receive Him as your Savior.
Our Freedom in Christ
On July 4th we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence which made America a free nation. We owe a great debt of gratitude for the sacrifices that have been made so that we can be free. But we owe a far greater debt to Jesus for the freedom He purchased for us with His own blood! Do we really know all that we have been set free from in Christ? Once we truly begin to understand what His sacrifice has done for us, every day will be a celebration of the Christian’s Declaration of Independence!
