True Freedom — Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jesus Christ

Last year on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, Ginger and I celebrated with the band she sings and plays keyboards in called L-Rey.

I was truly impressed as thousands gathered in the Bill Graham Auditorium in San Francisco and express their appreciation for what he did for freedom in our nation. Of course, there is still much to do, but in the past 40+ years the landscape has changed for millions of people.

God created us in His image! We must never forget that. And He created us to know Him and to love Him. And that certainly means everyone. So let us take our time, offer a prayer of thanksgiving, to our creator.

Genesis 1:27 (New Living Translation)

So God created human beings in his own image.
      In the image of God he created them;
      male and female he created them.

Along these lines, we also can read on to find much deeper and forever-lasting freedom. That freedom is found in none other than faith in Jesus. We often pray for peace for our neighborhoods, in our families, in our nation, and in our world. But how much more does God long for us to have absolute freedom in our spirits … in our hearts.

John 8:36 (Amplified Bible)

So if the Son liberates you [makes you a free person], then you are really and unquestionably free.
