Freedom in Christ. July 4th was the celebration of Independence day in America honoring the 225th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence declaring freedom from England. Just as this day was set aside to celebrate America’s national freedoms, the Christian should set aside time to recognize the freedom we have in Christ Jesus. The lesson on 07-08 teaches from Acts 16:6-10. The book of Acts is as much about the Acts of the Holy Spirit as it is the Acts of the Apostles. What are the differences between the activity of the Holy Spirit in Acts compared to today? This lesson discusses some of these differences and puts acts of the Holy Spirit in context. Finally, the lesson correlates the national freedom Americans are celebrating to the spiritual freedom we have from the law and ordinances by Grace in Christ.
