Happy Birthday, America
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.Isaiah 61:1
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
