In that great Mel Gibson movie, Braveheart, and of course in history, the Scots had to fight for and earn their freedom. In fact, William Wallace’s final word in the movie was “Freedom!”

 

The Bible’s message stands in contrast to this fight for freedom. By the mercy of God, His people are given freedom. God does the “fighting” in His son’s death for us. By His death we are freed from the penalty and power of sin. So, this is going to be a good day as we hear this good news from God’s Word!
